Autotext in DWG


Is it possible to publish autotexts from Archicad that will keep their functionality also in DWG?


What I need is a File Path Autotext in a DWG-file, that will show the DWG's location.


When I place such autotext in Archicad, it tells me the Archicad files's location, but when exported/published to DWG, it just becomes a static text with its previous contents from Archicad.


Unfortunately no, auto-text is exported as regular text when converting to AutoCAD dwg. 
File name and path are fields in AutoCAD not regular text.

Within AutoCAD you could create an Block with the Attribute Definition of the save location. I do not believe there is a way to automatically convert an Autotext into a a Block with an Attribute Definition.
