Importing DXF line work into existing S57 ENC Chart

Hold Shift and delete existing line work

Import DXF file

Select from the list cPoly2d. Ftr 1:1 . Pick Navigation Line Geo: Line

Save chart out to new *.000 name scheme

Text in the chart is a bit different. Apples vs Oranges sorry to say.  There is no 1-1 correspondence between cad elements and s57 Objects.

Cad – Put any old text, line, area feature etc. in drawing as you see fit

S57 – Create Geometry, Attach to Object, Add Attributes: S52 decides how it will be portrayed
