General Usage Instructions

Upon running the program with the command syntax 'Steal' at the Autodesk® AutoCAD® command-line, the user is prompted to select a drawing file (dwg/dwt/dws formats permitted) from which to steal items. Following a valid selection, if the selected drawing contains items not already present in the current drawing, a dialog will appear displaying items available for import. The drawing collections named above containing items available to be imported are listed in the left-hand list panel of the dialog, and items within each selected collection are listed to the right of the dialog. The interface allows the user to import multiple items from several collections without exiting or restarting the program, since the dialog will remain until either the user presses the 'Done' button, or there is nothing left to import from the selected drawing. The user may update the data displayed in the dialog by pressing the 'Refresh' button located in the top-left corner of the dialog. A refresh of the drawing data may be required after importing items such as blocks since these items may have object dependencies (such as layers, linetypes, and other block definitions dependent upon the constituent objects of the imported block) which are also be imported to the active drawing. The user may also search the collections for a specific item to import using the search panel to the bottom of the dialog. The search is not case-sensitive and may use wildcards
