I have seen many people asking the same question and none have solve my issue. I already check that the add on is check. The layouts have no list on it so they are only lines. The file I am working was done in Autocad and now I work over with Archicad, maybe that have something to do? What I am missing? Please look at the screenshot  attached.

Hi @maurotrotta ,

I am not sure what is your question. If I understood correctly you want to export to a dwg file.
If so do the following:

Enter the desired publisher set and then select the desired output file.

you need to select one of the other two options to save DWGs. The first option saves files in a folder structure that mimics your Layout Book Subsets; the second just publishes DWGs to the target folder.

Thanks  for replying. I want to export as dwg, you understood right. I am trying to do as you show in your screenshot but in my case, the format tab is grey and I can´t click on it. Publishing properties are set to Save file.

Hi @Aaron Bourgoin , what options are you refering? the 2 format options I have in my first screenshot? I would like to export some of the project layouts so that when is open in Autocad, each layout appear in the paper space section of Autocad with their corresponding view.

Hi,

 

you need to enter in Publishing properties and then set to be real folder structure.

Because if you set single file or flat file it will only give you pdf or BIMx file type.
