I import a csv file into my drawing and all the points and figures get drawn correct and on the correct layers.
But I end up getting some extra things also:
1. a little white circle comes in from the marker styles. it comes in on layer V-SURV-NTWK
2. i also get an extra white line that comes in on layer 0.
I have stopped these things from happening now by hitting the light bulb for the "basic" Marker Style and the "basic" Feature Line Styles. But i would really like to know what the Marker Style and Feature Line Styles are and what they are there for.
If anyone can spare any info about it that would be great.

I believe what your seeing is part of a Network Style, when you import to the survey database you provided a network name for the csv file, this is not a mandatory item, you can skip this as it's only use is for analyzing data with a field book file.
In general, I only import a single csv file to the database, so I never use a network. Then I adjust and modify (translate) from there. When I need to make modification to the data, I edit the csv (for linework) and reimport the file until everthing looks good.
This is not to there are not uses for them, just that I personally dont use them very often. In my opionion they have very limited capablities, with respects to rotation and translation, as you can only translate a database once, and I think you should be able to translate the database and the network. Then if you already had a database that was translated and got additional data that was on another coordinate system you could import to a network and translate the network to the existing data.
