Exporting title block to CAD format for consultants


I am using version 23 on a Mac running Mojave

I’ve been trying to export our title block to AutoCAD so we can send it to our consultants, but the font type keeps changing during the conversion. Even when I set up the Font-style conversion in the translator, it still changes Helvetica to font Swiss721 BT, and some other text boxes change to the ’standard’ Autocad text font.

Is there something I’m missing in the translator so that this does not happen?

I have a suggestion you may try: specify a Template File in the Save Options page of the DWG Translator Dialog. In that DWG you should have the text style you want your ARCHICAD font to convert to.
Then, when you specify the Font-style conversion, you can simply select the style from the template file. I have not tried, but that might work.
