When I I convert a 2012 dwg into a 2007 format whether using true view or "saving as" 2007 from an open drawing, some of the graphics disappear.  How do I convert withour losing these graphics?  thanks...

You need to convert down to R2007 format instead of just saving down: in R2012 use -EXPORTTOAUTOCAD command (you can type it or click on the big A, then SaveAs then select the DWG CONVERT option).

Realize that this task removes any specific R2012 feature you may have added to the file, so unless you don't care, I would make a copy and send that instead.
