Text field indents in DWG

Not applicable
I am having troubles exporting text fields to DWG correctly, both from version 20 and 22, but I guess it applies to older versions as well.

The conversion seems to dismiss indents in the text field from Archicad - all three, the left and right, as well as first line indent.
Interestingly, the "tab stops" seem to export correctly.

Has anyone came across this issue before?
Not applicable
Any ideas anyone?

I looked into this, and apparently this is an error in our exporter - it doesn't handle tabulation/indents properly (error #261322).

I am afraid there isn't really anything you could do about it for now (unless you use spaces instead to make the offset).
