Exported title block=lost data

Question

Hello, I am using the standard VW Arch Vert title block and I want to export it to my engineer in DWG format with the data that is already placed in the block. So starting with a blank file, on a sheet layer, I create the standard Arch Vert block and fill out what I want. Then I export to DWG and when I import that file into a brand new empty document, the title block is there but it is no longer filled in. I would think the data would be exported. My engineer also opens the file and he gets the empty block too. He is able to enter data there but my data is gone. Is this a bug or what? Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, Bradley

This one sounds as a bug, which is reported as fixed for the next version.

A workaround in this case is to convert the title block to group and to export (also better to do this in a copy file)

Wow, thanks Nina. I assumed this topic was destined to be lost in antiquity. So I recently contacted tech support via phone and Donald Ward, after some initial troubleshooting failed, contacted me the next morning and held my hand through the workaround. His direction was to duplicate and edit the titleblock as needed for each sheet exported and to export from the design layer. Thanks to him and to you for your excellent work responding to this.
