Hello-
When saving dwgs from Archicad 22 and opening the file in Autocad, the paper space tab contains the layout and our views are saved as blocks. When I open another dwg file in Autocad that was created in Autocad, the paper space tab contains the viewports where I can click on elements in the viewport, see what layer they are on, etc. Is this possible to achieve when saving dwgs from Archicad? I think I've exhausted every translator combination and any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Namaste,
I have draftsight not AutoCAD with me to work with dwg files, however when I save an ArchiCAD 22 file with the attached settings, I can select individual elements and get their properties. Hope this helps.
