Selecting Polylines in CAD drawings (dwg, dxf files)

Hi! I am new to UIPath and I am looking for a way to automate some workflows in programs that are similar to AutoCAD. The steps are as follows:

  1. Click on some dropdowns/buttons/etc. from the menu (this is easy and works fine).
  2. Then click on a polyline (this is the part where I’m stuck). I tried Computer Vision, but not sure how to do this and if it is doable.
  3. Enter some values retrieved from an Excel sheet in a pop-up form (this shouldn’t be difficult if step 2 would work).

These steps need to be done for each polyline from the dwg file. The problem is, how to make the program select each polyline? If I record the action of selecting the first polyline and run it, it works, but if I zoom in/out, it doesn’t. And I can’t figure out how to make the program to click on each.
