    Insert a .dwg file into a drawing sheet view and edit in Draftsight

      I can't seem to get this one right.

      I have some 2D schematics somebody else has drawn in Draftsight that I want to add to a SW drawing file as a view.  I also want to retain the link to the file if I need to edit it at a later time.

      When I go to Insert>Object>Create From File and select the .dwg file, it never comes into the drawing.  There's a window that has the file name.  You can click on it and it will open Draftsight to edit it...but the problem is that the actually schematic line drawing never shows up in the views.

       

      I've also tried Insert>DWG/DXF.  This imports the file into a 2D sketch in SW, but I want to retain the 2D editing withing Drafting.
