How to keep fills when exporting details to dwg and back to pln

Anonymous

If I save a 2D detail as a dwg using the marquee tool, when I drag it back to Archicad some of the fills become lines. Is there a way to prevent the fills changing?

The reason why that happens because during DWG export ArchiCAD converts symbol fills into lines. To avoid this you can set fill/hatch conversion match table in DWG/DXF translator. Fill conversion match table available only if you are using DWG file as template. You need to create DWG file, where all needed AutoCAD hatches are drawn (let say as squares). DWG translator reads from file information about hatches and able to choose a hatch to replace ArchiCAD Fill.
