DWG to DGN custom linetypes export

641 Views, 3 Replies

One of the features of AutoCAD 2012 is that supports export custom linetypes.  When I try to do the mapping for export, on the right hand column (DGN)  I only get up to 7 linetypes to choose.  Even after clickng on the drawing properties import, it seems like everything gets imported into the left hand column.  Is there somehting I am missing on hoo to use the mapping properly?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Francisco,

 

I think I can reproduce the issue. Here is what I'm doing:

 

1. In a new file I create some lines with different linetypes, Export > V8 DGN > Save > OK.

2. Create new file and Export > V8 DGN > Save > Mapping Setups > New > Continue > Click the DGN icon on top right and browse to the DGN file created in step 1 > Open.

 

Expected: linetype properties coming from the file created in item 1 should be added to the DGN list (on the right)

Result:  linetype properties coming from the file created in item 1 are added to the DWG list (on the left)

 

Could you please confirm that this is what you are doing?

 

Cheers,

Luciane

Hi Luciane,

 

Yes this exactly what is happening.  The imported linetypes don't show up on the left (DGN) column as expected.  Is this a known bug?

 

Your help is much appreciated.
