Have you tried DWG template file in translator? You can set as many parameters in DWG, as possible (for example page size, monochrome pens in layout, layers, hatches, lines, fonts). When ArchiCAD will create new DWG, it will be based on the settings of template file.
Please note, that if you want to use hatches and line types - place them in the DWG template.

I recommend to get AutoCAD (there are trials available on Autodesk web-site, that can run for 30 days) and create your own DWG template file. Usually it solves a lot of problems with DWG export.

I don't know. Try. I didn't have any problems with DWG before, but didn't test it in ArchiCAD 24.
If it will not solve the problem - then it might be a bug.
Look, ArchiCAD became a massive program. Of course there might be bugs as in any software.
My advice - make your own deep research of the problem until you find out how it works the best possible way. Of course it's possible constantly request from developers to fix everything (I've seen these guys - usually they have a lot of negative emotions and as workers - at the end of the day - are really bad. Maybe they are covering their unprofessional nature by complaining all the time), but if you were be able to solve most of the problems by yourself - that would make you a real professional in BIM field.

Thank you very much for raising this issue with us!
Although I haven't been able to thoroughly reproduce it, I agree with Podolsky that having a template DWG for translation is a much better way to export from Archicad to AutoCAD.
I understand the struggle when creating a DWG template, but it will well worth the effort. Many problems when exchanging data between Archicad and AutoCAD can only be solved by using a template, simply because the way Archicad and AutoCAD handle linetypes, font, text size, dimensions, fills and pens are very different.
I am very sorry for the inconvenience! Please let me know if you have any further questions!
