    Today we don't support import of closed splines. We have this on the plan to support in the future.

    I can't wait for this support so we can import all dxf/dwg files from illustrator! :)

    I am getting the message, but these comments are a year and a half old. Is there any progress on this issue?

    Try exporting from Illustrator with 'adjust paths for appearance' ticked.
