This option is used when you want to insert a whole drawing into an existing gCADPlus drawing. As an example, you may well have chosen a template, drawn site boundaries and then be looking to insert a previous design into this new job. This command as the name implies, inserts a gCADPlus drawing into the current drawing space. Unlike the BLOCK or BLOCKS commands, there is no opportunity to scale or change the rotation angle of the entities being imported. Again, unlike a block, all entities are exploded on entry using this option.

The figure below shows the Insert option being used from an empty template. We have navigated to a store of existing designs and about to insert a design for an outdoor classroom space into a larger site drawing. Note that a reasonably sized preview of the drawing to be inserted, shows in the gCADPlus Preview Pane at the right.
