Having an issue in a Civil firm.   Drew up some plans using the site portion of Softplan.  Easy enough.  However when I export them as dwg or dxf files, the utilities lose their specific line properties.  Please see attached.  This is turning into another argument in their favor to force me to Autodesk products.     Help me, please!

Might have to export the line styles. Not sure if that would work. Or, find Autodesk line styles to import and use in SP that will keep their properties. May be worth labeling or using a line key instead. Imports to SP from Autodesk get ugly too.


It is becoming more painful to work with Autodesk users as now most is "online" and proprietary which does not allow it to play well with other programs. Their way of holding onto their users.
