Drawing Import Output Folder/Project Window
This window is the first step in the import process.

that the imported drawings will be added to.
This windows can be used in three ways:
- Import the drawings into an existing Dimension project.
- Create a new Dimension project and import the drawings into that project

Assign the drawings to a Dimension project - Check this radio button if you want to assign the drawings to a new or existing Dimension project.
Existing Projects : -

(plus a "(none)" entry at the beginning of the list).
If you wish to assign the drawings to an existing project,
simply select the project from this list and proceed to the next step.
If you wish to create a new project, select "(none)". You will then need to enter the Description and select a Project Folder.
