Exporting a Layout as a single DWG

Hi All, 

 

It would be great if someone could help me with this: 

Is it possible to save and/or publish a layout in ArchiCAD as a .dwg file, and create a single file that is representative of the layout? 
When I export .dwg files I always get a folder of multiple files including xrefs and the views that the layouts were referencing.

Have a look at the settings of your DXF/DWG translator.

Look at these settings in particular ...

I can't tell you exactly what you need as I never have the need to save layouts as DWGs.

Use the help button (?) in that dialogue and click on those settings to find out what they do.
