I am working on a complex board outline (and some complex pad shapes) and am importing them as DXF files in pcbnew. I am currently using ViaCad Pro as my drawing program. Files are being exported as DXF, R12 format.
I can import the files with no problem, however despite grouping them in ViaCad before export, they do not remain grouped - i.e. grabbing the outline to (M)ove it only grabs the immediate underlying line segment. Similarly, when I am trying to modify a composite line and, for instance move it to another layer, I have to move each individual line segment one at a time.
Is this expected behaviour or is this a defect in my export format?
I have attached an example outline. Is it possible to group the whole DXF? Happy to try and use FreeCad but would need a few pointers!
