[bldg-sim] eQuest 3.55 importing CAD question

I'm having trouble importing (okay, not really importing, but viewing!)
CAD files into eQuest.

I can start editing a specific polygon, and go through the importing
process, however as long as I'm looking at that polygon, the CAD file is
not visible.  Nor are the layers command or the CAD drawing properties
available to me.

Once I move up a level to the polygons folder, I can see the CAD file.
But trying to edit a polygon, no cad file.  The file is loaded into the
program, as the file is in the PD2 file...it continues to be available
when looking at the whole building as opposed to one polygon or floor.

I remember using these functions successfully before, but can't seem to
figure them out.  Has something changed in the new release?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
