Error in CAD batch export (publish) with merge option


Issue with CAD batch export (publish) (Archicad 24 & 25 both version have this error)

We noticed this issue has been already posted and discussed but there is no solution found so posting again as it is extremely important and of highest priority to get correct CAD exports from the model as part of final submission.


Error in Publishing multiple sheets with merge option as error comes up for drawings need checking even after we update all drawings multiple times, with all possible options to update drawing. (Manually open sheet and update each drawing on sheet Or update using Drawing Manager).
We are exporting part plans of one level floor in multiple sheets, and we need one CAD file and all different part layout setup. And model space should show just one floor plan view. This we were able to achieve earlier in same version Archicad but this error to update drawings do comes up randomly and after that CAD never exports correctly. 
We experienced this on both teamwork as  well as local file. Error message attached for reference.

Hello there,

Before exporting, select drawings to be exported and just click the "Check Status" button at Drawing Manager (not Update). For drawings that are embedded from an external teamwork project, everything has to be sent and released from team members to be able to check and/or update that drawing.

After that, in spite of errors, you should be able to export to CAD correctly.
