Jon,
        your DXF problem is not so strange at all. Because of the
complexities of differing DXF versions and different tools generating the
DXFs, reading them into Protel can be real hit and miss. For example, I have
one DXF that reads perfectly into P98. Reading the same file into P99SE a
bunch of features are jostled all around the area and the file makes no
sense whatsoever.
        With DXF always try using ACAD version 12 or at least 13 DXF first.
If it doesn't work you can try reading those into P98, doesn't work then you
can try V2.8. If all of those fail then I usually try running it through
Camtastic before importing into Protel.
