Studio cannot open such files. At least I am not able to do that in Studio.

Third party tool might work with DXF files Sep 13, 2010

AFAIK, the only tool that can handle DXF files is TranslateCAD. It's Shareware so you can test it to see if it works with your files.

In its full version handles DXF files wonderfully. Still no CAT tool or AutoCAD plugin can help when it comes to titles consisting of two or more separate lines of text, and these are more than common.
