text missing when importing dwg from AutoCAD 2007 LT

Question

I am importing a dwg from a colleague who uses AutoCAD 2007 LT. I am using Vectorworks 12.5.2. Everything imports ok but all the text and dims are missing. They are not hidden on any layers and i've asked them to export using earlier versions but it makes no difference. Does anyone know of any solutions to this irritating problem?

Try playing with the 2d/3d conversion import options. Text from autocad files is sometimes in 3d and can disappear on import if its not converted to 2d
