Sequencing DXF lines

I attached a part file with a sketch that I am having trouble sequencing the cuts in a DXF format. Normally, I use AutoCAD LT to make simple DXF drawings for the waterjet at work, however, AutoCAD LT isn't cooperating. All the tricks I learned to sequence has not worked, so I decided to try in SolidWorks. I wanted the parts to be cut out running right to left. The part in the top right corner cuts out correctly, but the next 3 parts are somewhat lumped together. I can tell because it cuts out the hole of the regular trapezoid, then 3 out of 4 of the holes on the two rectangles closest to the top. Next, it cuts the top rectangle, followed by the 4th hole, then goes back to the trapezoid. Lastly, it goes back to the second rectangle before continuing cutting how I thought I programmed it. I hope I explained this correctly. Anyone know of a sequencing tool in SolidWorks? Thank you for any help.
