Change Tool clouds drawn in layout not exporting

Jeff Kogut

Hovever, Change Tool clouds drawn in views show just fine.

Cloud 1 is drawn on the layout.
Cloud 2 is drawn in the view.

I've tried to tweak the export settings to no avail. The only other thing I've noticed is that the cloud has rennovation properties in the view, but not in the layout. Any ideas or is this a bug?

Is it there in Paper Space in the DWG file?
If you place an element onto the Layout in ARCHICAD, I think that will be exported into the Paper Space of the resulting DWG/DXF file, not the Model Space, where the contents of Views are exported.
And I think that is the correct behaviour.

(This is my print test drawing, we just got a new large format printer so I'm rechecking everything.)


Cloud 01 is not there (in Paper Space) in the .dwg in Trueview.

Yes, I was expecting Cloud 01 to show up in Paper Space in the .dwg file but it isn't there at all. Not even a node or missing element as far as I can tell.

So I think we're in agreement that Cloud 01 should be there? Can you test it on your end? If you can get it to show from Layout to Paper Space then I must have something set up wrong.


EDIT: So I changed the translator to just push everything to Model Space, see attached image, and both Clouds 01 & 02 show up as expected. It'll be a dumb .dwg file all in Model Space, which I personally dislike, but any AutoCAD guys will just have to deal with it I guess.

I checked this in AutoCAD 2017 and for me the Change Marker placed on the Layout always goes through to the DWG file without a problem. I tried all 4 possible options in the Save Layout Into field of the Save Options page. In case of the first 3 options the Change Marker placed on the Layout will be in the Paper Space of the DWG file (as expected), while in case of the 4th option it will be located in the Model Space of the DWG file (as expected), just as the other Change Marker placed in the View.

So I could not reproduce this issue. I am on AC20 INT build 5011. If you are on an earlier build you may try to update to the latest one, see if that makes any difference.
