Symbol Mapping entry

Symbol name

Enter the symbol name. This is the name of the symbol in the imported Impact drawing.


From the pulldown list choose the required option:-

  • Map to symbol
  • Convert the symbol to a block
  • Remove symbol

If the option Convert the symbol to a block is chosen then a new block will be created with the same name as the imported symbol.

If the option Remove symbol is chosen then all imported symbols with the given name will be deleted.


This only becomes available if the option Map to symbol has been chosen. In this case use the symbol selector button  to choose a symbol in the current database to map the imported symbol to.
