DWF export Hatch Problem


Hello Everyone,
I am facing a problem regarding DWF export.
I have exported the layout (Fig.1) , but when open on Design Review the layout appear black here we and a color (Fig.2)

Please let me know if you have any idea or suggestion on this issue. I am using Archicad 25 at OS X 11.6


this is most likely a masking fill issue. DWG will not include fills with a foreground/background pen. There are a few things you can do. Firstly, set a graphic override or elevation marker setting to turn all fills white and avoid 100% solid fills or any screen fills. At the very least, you should have a graphic override rule for all fill background pens to be transparent (pen 0). Next, you can adjust the dwg translator to NOT save background/masking fills fills.

Hi All,


Thank you very much for the reports and I am very sorry for the issue!


I made a quick elevation in Archicad 25 INT 5005 and export it to DWF (with color and shadow turned on), however I was unable to reproduce the issue. Could it be possible that you have enabled Texture fill in the Elevation settings?


If not, I suggest reaching out to the local support with the project plan and steps to reproduce, so that they can start the investigation from here.


Thank you very much!

Best regards,
