When importing dxfs, you get a window asking you to select vector layers to add. With all the dxfs I've imported so far, that has had two layers called entities, one of which is points and one of which is linestrings. I select all, click OK, and then the file imports. This has to be done for each dxf.
Today I had to import approximately 200 dxfs (which I eventually combined using the data management tools.) Having to click on select all and then on OK, to select the vector layers for each and every one of those dxfs was very tedious!
Is it possible to set QGIS to select all automatically as it imports dxfs, without my having to sit there for half an hour repeating those clicks?
(The dxfs were created from NTF tiles, using the LL2DXF converter. Unfortunately, many of them will not open in Autocad due to an invalid block name so I can't combine them in CAD if there are lots. I do have a script that can strip out the blocks, but it is a little slow and has to be used one file at a time. That's OK for a small number, but today I had a very large area of map to convert and there are other towns to do over the coming weeks.)
I hope that this is not a duplicate question. I did have a search first but can't find anything similar.
As to how this is not really a duplicate, the other questions (that look similar) are all quite a bit older and the codes might not be relevant, the answers did not explain how to actually use the codes (and those codes appear to be different from the one that eventually solved this issue,), and a moderator told me in another thread that I am not supposed to comment or ask questions in an old thread and must start my own.
The answer given in the thread that has just been linked above is completely different and has no explanation how to use it.
