I would like to use nanocad in the future, because I am currently using bricscad.

I need 2 important properties that I have in bricscad

1 Importing dxf files into the current page. When using the import in nanocad it opens a new page. Then I have to copy that item to my main page. This is time consuming. Is there a way to import directly into a sheet?

2 I have a script in bricscad that imports all the dxf files from a folder directly to the sheet at specific places on the sheet with text and item numbering. Is that possible in nanocad
