      The DS manual CH 11.8.1 references importing DXF files but I do not see that file type option on the import menu. Is this only supported in the Pro version?

      It’s also available in the free version.
      Go to “Tools” > “Markers” > “Import” from the mainmenu.
      You’ll be able to import markers from various file types.

      See also the image below.

      Hello – I have just started evaluating this software, and wonder about the same thing.
      Can the marker curve be “transformed” into a control curve or edge curve?
      A guide on how to import from lines plan in e.g. AutoCAD (where curves are located “in space”), via DXF – either faired or basic, would be very helpful. The image background approach as described, is outdated, as we have already converted our old papercopy lineplans to cad files.

      I made as you have written, but the only option in Tools/Markers/Import is
      Files of type: Text files (*.txt)
      I have dowloaded FreeShip recently

      That’s correct, FREE!ship will not import other formats but text files.
      DELFTship however will, see the screenshot below. Once you open the “Import markers” window you can select several file formats to import.

      No, but you can extract the points from a marker to control points which then can be used to add new faces to them.
