I have a DXF file provided by a customer, it is made up of polylines, polygons and arrows with annotations pointing to the features.

I want to extract certain features but also associate the annotations with them

When I load the DXF into ArcGIS Pro I get various groups:

  • Annotation
  • Multipatch
  • Polyline
  • Polygon
  • Point

Within each of these groups there are multiple layers

So it seems to be quite a mess to try and sort. Is there a good way to go about sorting a CAD file in ArcGIS Pro?

    What is your end goal - to convert this into a geodatabase?
