Spot Elevations Disappear when Saving down from 2013 to 2007

Hello All,


I just completed my first topo using Civil3D 2013 (yay!) and now I want to send it to a client. However, when I save it as an ACAD 2007 file and go to open it using ACAD 2007 the spot elevations and all text and symbols associated with them disappear. I can't imagine that you have to have Civil3D to view a Civil3D file. Is there something I can do here?


I did not create a survey database with these points, just imported the .txt file from the field.


Thanks for the help.

I've seen the same problem.  I usually set the styles the way I want, then select all my Cogo Points and explode them, and they become a block that retains the text in the save-down.
