First you should create a wishful map structure in GDB (to add layers in map, feature types in layers with necessary spatial category).
Next you set a correspondence between imported DXF layers and created components. Then you perform import.


Now, you have an empty GDB.

Next you do it:

1. Add a map to the GDB.

2. Add a layer to created map (e.g. "Layer 1").

3. Add feature type(s) to layer "Layer 1"(e.g. "Type 1").
During adding feature types you should set a spatial category of feature
types corresponding features in DXF file (area, line, point, text).

4. And, in fact, importing DXF file:

4.1 Step 1 of wizard - Select DXF file for import.

4.2 Step 2 of wizard "Setting components".
Now "List of components" panel shows all layers in DXF file and "List of supcomponents" panel shows all spatial types in selected DXF layer.

You should set a correspondence between types categories in DXF
and GDB feature types.

For that:
- select any row in list (for example "Area");
- use context menu (click mouse right button on selected row
within "List of supcomponents" panel) and select "Import" menu element;
- dialog window "Setting import of feature type" will be open;
- select created layer "Layer 1" from combobox "Layer name";
- select created feature type "Type 1" from combobox "Feature type name" and click OK.

4.3. Steps 3-5 may be skipped by clicking "Next" and step 6 - click "Import".
