You can save the import settings of colors, layers, line, text, and hatch fonts in the mapping file that is located in the working directory, or in an alternate directory or folder. If this mapping file is not located in the working directory, you must set the real or absolute path of this file as the value of the configuration option intf2d_in_mi_mapping_file.
If you select the Generate a log file check box, you can click to view the log file in a new window. The log file includes details like configuration options and values, imported entities and layers, as well as the ignored entities and the reason for skipping their import.
