Some of the objects being imported from a DXF get joined together when they are separate objects while exporting.  How can I fix this?

DXF files sometimes get exported as multiple line segments.  This is pretty common for making curves.  So LightBurn (as well as other software) will automatically join any lines that are close together when it's importing.  You can change the distance threshold that's used (Settings->DXF Import Settings->Auto Close Tolerance, on the left).  A value of zero should disable auto-joining.  You can also select the lines and choose "Break Apart."
