The INSERT command allows you to insert the contents of a file into another file.
--Locate the file you wish to insert through this dialogue box and click on
Open to return
to the Insert
--Prompt: Specify insertion point or [Scales/X/Y/Z/Rotate/PScale/PX/PY/PZ/Protate]: Either place the cursor and click with the LEFT mouse button, use an Osnap, an Absolute Coordinate, a Relative Rectangular Coordinate, or a Relative Polar Coordinate to locate the inserted object's position.
--Prompt: Enter X scale factor, specify opposite corner, or [Corner/XYZ] <1>: Type a value to scale the inserted object in the X direction or press Enter to keep the block its original size in the X direction.
--Prompt: Enter Y scale factor <use X scale factor>:): Type a value to scale the inserted object in the Y direction or press Enter to accept same scale factor used for X.
--Prompt: Specify rotation angle <0>: Type a desired angle or press Enter to accept original angle of the inserted item.
*NOTE: If you slide
your mouse around during several Insert
command prompts, the size, shape, and angle of the inserted object may change.
AutoCAD's default selection is a "mouse pick" (a click
of the LEFT mouse button in the drawing area), and it is preparing to use
that option, which accounts for the changes in the inserted object's look during
the command prompts.
