If I audit or recover this file I get no errors, but if I try to export or batch and explode aec object I get error...try recover and no file gets created. Any suggestions?
Can you Exportotautocadr12dxf? I usually go to this format as a standby when nothing else works. Maybe it will work for you.
Thanks, that should work, I'll give it a go in the morning
This happens to me too. I do not want a DXF file, I would like to export to AutoCAD like it's supposed to.
I've had issues when XREF's are in the drawing.
I do a SAVEAS, BIND the Xrefs and EXPORT then CLOSE the drawing without Saving - seems to work
I'm still having trouble, I don't have xrefs but do have datalinks that cannot be bound, detached or unloaded? I thimks I PDF is my only option
What about DWF ??
If you are wanting to use as an underlay, I have had much better results with a DWF rather than a pdf
I agree with that Neil. Popping a pdf into a dwg is the best way I know to make AutoCAD slow to a crawl.
Dwf, PDF, it make no diff to me I'm sending the drawing out.
