10.13.01.01. I frequently acquire data from other softwares. Frequently these are DXF. When I merge those in all the data goes to Default level instead of the level they were assigned as a DXF. Generally I am merging them into the Design model.
Am I missing some setting, or is this just bug #83?
Apologies, that was for the scale issue. The attached is the level thing.
File is from Surfer, attached to a 2d design model, scale 1:1, merge.

Should have mentioned. This (level) used to work fine in previous Connect release(?). I looked in Surfer, could not find an option to change the layer (level) name to something more reasonable.
Thanks for clarifying what this particular issue was regarding. I have tested the merge of this DXF as a reference and have replicated what you are saying. The elements on this level "Contours-GWCdata.grd" is going to the Default level. I have checked for existing Defects that may have been raised but this had not been reported. I have created a new one for our development team to investigate.
Defect 1062398:Merging referenced DXF the elements move to Default level
As for a workaround until this is fixed, you can edit a DXF file in a text editor like Notepad++. I suspect the issue is regarding the ".grd" part of the level name so what you can perform in a text editor is Find and Replace. You could perform the Find using "a.grd" and just replaced this with "a" to make the new level name "Contours-GWCdata". When you merge these elements they now stay on this level name. Try this out and tell me what you think.

Good detective work! This AskInga wiki covers that specific issue.

That level name was coming from a different software. The only point was that it used to work fine, now it doesn't.
