How to open dxf and dwg files in solid edge 2d drafting (free 2d) software.

Please could any one tell me the standard procedure for opening the dxf and dwg file in the solid edge 2d drafting (free 2d) softawre.

I am able to open the dxf and dwg file but it is not parametric. That is the dimensions are getting converted to text.

When you browse to the DWG/DXF file with the Open form, single click on the file you wish to open, then select the Options button to display the translation settings wizard. Click on the Next button to display "Step 2 of 8" and check the option "Import Dimensions as Dimensions".

Repeatedly click Next until you get to "Step 8 of 8" and select the option "Create a new configuration file", give it a name and store it in a location such as My Documents.

Thanks,
Ken
