Exporting to ACAD - Where is the file?

James A


Hello, Forgive my ignorance. I am exporting a VM 12.5 file to .dwg for use on an unknown acad version. After exporting the result is a folder with various PAT files and the DWG file. Do I email the whole folder or just the file with the dwg extension. Attempte to import this dwg file resulted in a file that showed the drawing but in unselectable grey lines.

Any advice would be great

Thank you

Yes, send the whole folder if they need the hatches and patterns included in the file. If not, then just send the dwg file.

The gray lines are a result of having "Snap to Loci" enabled in the VectorWorks Preferences (Tool > Options > VW Prefs) under the Session tab.
