archicad to autocad dwg files

When saving dwgs from Archicad 22 and opening the file in Autocad, the paper space tab contains the layout and our views are saved as blocks. When I open another dwg file in Autocad that was created in Autocad, the paper space tab contains the viewports where I can click on elements in the viewport, see what layer they are on, etc. Is this possible to achieve when saving dwgs from Archicad? I think I've exhausted every translator combination and any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have draftsight not AutoCAD with me to work with dwg files, however when I save an ArchiCAD 22 file with the attached settings, I can select individual elements and get their properties. Hope this helps.
