When I export view from publisher set to dwg it is all fine, but when I export from layout to DWG I have problem.
Drawing in Autocad goes in to "Drawing and figure" layer, and then it acts like a block and it cannot be further modified in Autocad except if it is exploded, which messes up whole drawing ( example. hatch is completly torn, grids systems are separated etc.)

I have tried many combinations DXF-DWG Translation setup, but I didnt find solution.

Is there a way to export a layout from Archicad to dwg, to have fully modifyable drawing and layout?

This is actually a dwg export available setting

1 - Where and How your layout will be in your dwg
2 - How your draw will be in your dwg

To try is to achieve, but it's not really fun to do :?
