lpszFileName const LPSTR A far pointer to the name of the .ART file to import.
dwPageNumber DWORD Set this parameter to the page number to load if the .ART file has multiple pages. If the .ART file has one page, set this to 1.
bAppend BOOL If this parameter is TRUE, then current ART annotation will be simply added to the specified .ART file. Otherwise previous annotation in the file will be replaced by the current one.

This is typically used for combining a newly loaded image with marks that were previously made and saved separately to an .ART file.

This function is the same as ART_file_import(), but has supplementary parameter bAppend that allows you to determine if current ART annotation should be simply added to the specified .ART file (TRUE), or replace the existing one (FALSE).
