Hello Softplan Community,

 

Thank you for having a look at this. My issue is not exporting, but rather, the usability of the export. 

 

For my engineers, I export my drawings to DWG 2000. We're up in Montana, so I don't expect highfalutin' software usin' around these parts. The issue evidently arises when the Autocad user opens up my DWG export and attempts to copy items or save the file. Some of my layers are lost. Or, even if I export every item on a single layer, some just disappear. 

 

Have any of you fine folks come across this issue before? Am I simply goofing up my export somehow?

 

Thanks again,

 

Soren

It's pretty difficult to "goof up" the export!

 

Are they actually disappearing, or are they black on black/white on white?

Damn, sorry Keith. I completely forgot I had posted this, then came back across it via Google search! 

 

I'm not positive exactly what the situation is... when I open up my own DWG exports, everything is in order and my dark gray background default causes black lines to be drawn in white, automatically. Kinda nifty. I'm half suspicious that it is simply user error on the other end, though troubleshooting the issue at said source is not exactly feasible.
