Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2008-07-29 04:08:38 EDT
Well, actually in both cases something *is* imported. after the blank window is
opened after importing each document do "select all" (ctrl+A).

In the .psd you have a "bitmap with transparency" selected and in the .dxf you
have a "metafile" selected.

Without a comparison piece of software known to import these correctly I have no
reference to know if the import is correct or not.

I attach a sample .dxf I downloaded from
http://www.softsource.com/plugins/miscpipe.dxf to show an example of a .dxf that
definitely works
