Hi Alex,

 

This is a known limitation for dwf export. As a workaroud, currently, you can try to create a sheet, and add the 3D view to that sheet, then insert a tif format image on that sheet, then export this sheet view to dwf. If this doesn't satisfy your requirement very well, I would encourage you report such wish list here:

You can use the form in the link to tell us what you think about our products, their features, and any improvements you would like to see. Then related people will read all the feedback recieved and take what our customers have to say very seriously.

 

Thanks.

Yes. Maybe you still need to delete the view title to get a better result.
