AC25 Stretched objects are not translating well into DWG

Cabinets and desks and other objects that you can resize in Archicad 25 are snapping back to there default size and shape and orientation when translated to DWG. Is this a common issue? Or is there a translator setting that I am missing? I have tried multiple iterations for DWG translators.

I don't know if this will help but you can try unchecking the below checkbox in the DWG Translation Dialog and see if it achieves what you try to do:

Thank you for that tip. It worked. For some reason those functions were not even loaded into my translator. The translator I use is custom, but it never had a problem before until I took a copy of a pln file off of our BIMcloud and worked on it at home and then uploaded that copy. Not sure if this is what caused it, but the functions were easy to reload with a button on the page to "Reload Functions" On my translator, the "Save Extra" boxes to the right were blank. There was no box to uncheck.

Hmm, that is curious, but I am glad that the "Reload Functions" button worked to get those options back.
