Dwg export issue

Not applicable
So I finally signed up to the forum because I finally had a problem that I just can not figure out. I have been exporting archicad files to DWG for years and never had this problem. I usually need to export projects to dwg to send to engineers and subs, normally I will use the layouts to dwg method and the layer by color translator. The result is a cad file with a layer structure that matches the same layer order as my archicad file, with the addition of window and door layers.

The problem I'm now having is that the resulting cad file has layers based on each view from the layout or the particular view. For example, I have a file with 3 stories and 4 elevations I want to export, the cad layers produced will include a new layer for each story and elevation for a single archicad layer, such as:

a-first floor -wall ext
a-second floor-wall ext
a- third floor- wall ext
a-north-wall ext
a-south-wall ext
a-east-wall ext
a-west-wall ext

or something to that effect.

Does anyone know what i may have done, or changes I may have made that could have caused this.

thanks in advance for your help
