Menu: File > Open
Displays the Open Drawing dialog box so you can open an existing drawing. You
can open DWG, DXF, DWF, and DWT files with this command. To find files on another
drive, use the Look In list. You can navigate to find the file name you want,
or type the name into the File Name field.
To change how drawing files display in the Open Drawing dialog box, click the
View Menu button in the upper right corner.
The Preview area lets you see a thumbnail of a drawing before you open it.
A thumbnail image displays if one exists in the selected drawing, which depends
on the RASTERPREVIEW
system variable setting at the time the drawing was saved.
If the drawing you are opening requires a password, enter the password, click
OK to verify the password, and then click Open again.
