Text in DWG - formatting problems

Patrick M
Advisor

Does anyone have any solutions/recommendations for archicad exporting to DWG and large text box formatting issues? So far, all I've been able to do is copy/paste them into word or save a pdf and ask consultants to import or retype on their end (not ideal on either side of the exchange).

Maybe a wish forum post: save layout to txt or save selection as txt?

Hi,

 

DXF-DWG text formatting is known to have problems unfortunately, but I wonder how exactly did you create these columns?

There is no direct column formatting support in Archicad Text elements like in Word for example.

If you attached a sample file it would be easier to understand your issue.

 

Could you detail your idea for "save layout to txt or save selection as txt"?

Sounds like a very specific case where this could be used, but perhaps something that fits in an Add-on.

 

Technical Support can contact developers for you and they will enter bugs into their database to possible fix in some later update.

I suggest contacting them with specifics, but they will need the sample files as well.

You can create TAB positions in the text editor.
