When saving a floor plan in dwg format from ARCHICAD 17, almost all the objects turn into solid fill white blocks (same color as the contour line) which makes it impossible to identify the object.

Is there a setting in the translator to make the fill transparent?
Is there an alternative solution?

Its rather easy. Make sure the highlighted checkbox in the DWG translator is off.
