[mapguide-users] Load AutoCAD Map 3D DWG file

If I understand you correct, you expect that Studio creates "feature 
joins" out of link templates in MAP3D. This seems a little brave 
expectation since it is not always possible - if your link templates 
were pointing for example to a local MS Access file how would they be 
translated ? I think you have to create these joins in Studio
