    I have updated the first post to Version 1.1 - this changes the behaviour of the dialog, so that far more can be imported in a single run of the program. I've also added a couple of new collections to the list.

    Enjoy!

    By this I mean that the collections listed in the first post (blocks/layers/linetypes etc) will only be displayed in the dialog if they contain items which aren't already present in the current drawing.

    But yes, I do welcome ideas

    Where'd you come up with these ideas Lee Mac.

    The routine is very useful.
    Can you include a list of XREF as well. but generate a filter to exclude XREF style/layers/textstyle/blocks and the like.

    Thanks Lee

    Actually I very often need to update some of these "settings" from a template file. Importing them is quite easy with a simple copy-n-paste / drag-n-drop from Design Centre. What I've always had difficulty with is "redefining" something like a dimstyle to match that inside another DWG. In that particular case I "love" BricsCAD's Drawing Explorer.

    Lee ,

    The program is really great .

    I started to get used to it almost daily , I do like it.

    Is it possible to have a preview as well as the one which is included with the Block Insertion Message Box ?

    Thank you.

    To be honest, I wanted to steer clear of XRefs at present as I believe they would require a different method to 'import' them else they would arrive in the drawing unreferenced. But your point has reminded me that I currently need to filter out any XRef items from the other collections.

    Excellent to hear!

    Not impossible with LISP, but certainly very, very difficult. I have seen it done here, but its a pretty convoluted method.
