Exporting DWG from Layout

export

#1

Hello,
I am trying to export a DWG file from Layout however when I open that DWG file in AutoCAD, most of the paper space items are out of scale - font and dimensions. Is there a way to fix this issue so it exports the same as it appears on a page in Layout?

Just uncheck ‘Export as Native DWG/DXF Entities’ in the ‘options’ settings in the export dialog box.

Compare differences below…first with it checked, second without it (some formatting will change and you’ll have to adjust manually in CAD but this should solve some of the bigger issues):
