LO 2018 - exporting to .dwg becomes image file

Postby pipingguy » Sat Dec 08, 2018 7:21 pm

When I export a LayOut file to a .dwg file extension choice, it ends up as a .png file. Actually, a separate .png file for each LO viewport is generated.

Be sure to change your Layout 'viewport' from raster to vector before you export to DWG. This will solve your issue.

OK - Thanks.

DISCOVERED: If I leave LO's VP's as raster, the export process generates a .dwg file PLUS a folder containing the png image files. When the .dwg file is opened with AutoCAD, it xrefs the images - but you can freeze the images layer to have a wireframe visual style, if desired.
