Export external drawings inserted within Archicad file to .dwg when exporting layouts as .dwg

Not applicable

I've inserted some PDF files onto my plan layouts within Archicad, using the 'external drawing' method. I'm now trying to export these plan layouts to .dwg but when I do the external drawings are no longer in the .dwg file created. Is there a way to have these embedded in the .dwg when I export? It's so that someone outside the organisation can open the .dwg and still be able to see these external drawings that I have alongside the plans.

Hello aditi,

You have to consider dwg export settings :
