Supported file types for Import in Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D are a subset of the supported file types in Autodesk AutoCAD

When importing a file using the Import command on the Insert ribbon, you may notice that there are fewer supported file types available in Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D than are available in Autodesk AutoCAD. When referring to the Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D Help the list of formats supported by Autodesk AutoCAD are documented even though those formats are not available in Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D.

The VIEWBASE command in Help

The VIEWBASE command is described in the Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D Help; however, this command is not available in Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Labels with Reference Text

When opening a drawing from a previous release of Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D, labels that include reference text with values from expressions may be displayed incorrectly. Saving the drawing, closing it, and reopening the drawing should correct the label display.
