Fills conversion into dwg - AC 21 vs AC 23


Recently I did upgrade from AC 21 to AC 23.
In AC 21 fills conversion from pl to dwg did worp perfectly. But when I used same settings for AC 23, all fills are black.
Does it mean that in AC 23 I need manually set up Fills hatch conversion for each fills separately on there is some more fastest way to do it?

That does not sound right to me because I don't recall any changes between the two version in this area.
You should compare all the settings in the File > Interoperability > DXF-DWG Translation Setup Dialog between the two versions to see if there are any differences that might cause this.
In the "Settings" panel, some of the field that may influence this:

Save Options > File Format
Attributes > Fills > Methods > "Export all Fills as SOLIDS"
Attributes > Fills > Methods > "Export Fill Backgrounds as Additional solid Hatches
