Saving as Autocad only objects?

I need to send a drawing to a client that was created in Autocad 2013 although he is working in Acad 2010.

When I try to save as 2010 I get the meesage shown in the attachment.

I'm unable to find how to save as "Autocad only objects" or "Save to a previous version with Proxy Graphics"

Can someone fill me in on this. Haven't used autocad since switching to Revit 10 years ago.

Thanks

Hi,

 

try to use command _-EXPORTTOAUTOCAD (or _-AECEXPORTTOAUTOCAD2010) to save your drawing back to an older format. But do this only for a copy of your drawing, don't overwrite your current working file as objects are destroyed to plain AutoCAD geometry objects.
