DWG Export Line Types

Question

I'm trying to export a linetype to DWG

It came in as a DWG, I've worked on it a little and now want to output, but the lines lose thier text tags on export...

VW on the right, Trueview on the left.

 

Any ideas?

@RussU,

 

It could be a line type scale issue or, for some reason, create a line type failure on export. Would you, please, send the document you are exporting and the export settings you are using? You can do that privately, if you wish.

 

Thank you,

Nina

These were the last export settings I tried. I've tried both options for the "Export complex line types as Blocks" option.

 

Thanks for your help

Thank you for the files, @RussU!

 

After analyzing the situation we found, that this is a problem with AutoCAD drawing regeneration. Executing REGEN command or some other action inside AutoCAD, which will require drawing to be regenerated, results in line types shown properly there.

Thank you.
Further to your note, I found that if you are in TrueView you won't have the REGEN command available.

A work around for this is to change the view style from 2d, to hidden line or similar, and then back to 2d to force the regen command to happen. This also shows the lines correctly.

 

Thanks again @Nina Ivanova 👍
