exporting DWG/DX - display of wall components

Question

I am trying to export a floor plan to my engineer (background drawings) without all of the wall component information and I can't seem to get the walls to look like just two lines. Is there a way to do that? I tried going into the Document Preferences and selected Hide Wall Components when layer scale is <= to 1:1, and it shows up as two lines on the model space in VW, but when I put it onto a sheet, no matter what I do, the wall components show up again. When I export into DWG/DXF from the model space in VW with the components hidden, the AutoCAD file shows all the wall components and the hatching.(BTW, I unchecked all the hatching boxes.) I want to be able to export this so that my engineer doesn't have to clean up my drawings before they can use them as backgrounds.

The best thing I can tell you for this is to replace all the wall styles with a simple wall style that has no components.

Thanks Katie, I tried all sorts of combinations and I couldn't get rid of the components when I exported to DWG/DXF, so I will replace the walls with a simple wall style.
