Number per row - You can also adjust the number of files per row by adjusting the option.

Reset Origins - This option will move the entities in each sketch (layer of the dxf file) such that the bottom left corner of their bounding box is at the parts origin.

Combine to a single sketch - If checked all layers in the DXF will be combined into a single sketch. If unchecked a sketch will be created for each layer in the dxf file.

Thickness - The to the value to extrude profiles (If checked).

Apply Material - You can choose to automatically assign a material to all of the newly created components.

Material Name - The material to apply. Note the material must exist in the current model. You can browse the material library and add your chosen material before running the import command.

Import Text - If selected text from the DXF file will be read and rebuilt as Fusion 360 Text. The units of the DXF file will be used for scaling if they are present. If not the current document units will be used to interpret size.

Font - The Font to use for the imported text. To edit the available fonts you can edit the `fonts.txt` file located in: `./commands/resources`

Close Sketches - This option will attempt to close small gaps in the imported file.  

Gap Tolerance - 2 points within this tolerance will be merged. NOTE: This will, of course, have very subtle effects on the exact placement of imported geometry.

Save Settings - The current settings in the dialog will be saved as defaults for the next time you use the command.

Show Popup - If this is unchecked AND you save your settings, the popup informing you to select DXF files will not be displayed on future runs.
