Can anyone help with this problem:
I have been able to successfully extract object data from imported shape file (basin delineations with basin NAMES, etc..).
I have been successful to create labels (from the NAME attribute) that display just fine as long as i'm in Civil/Map3D. However, if i open the file in straight autocad (that the rest of the office uses) there are no labels. I can't simply copy them to another file, they are not copyable.
Thank you for your time!

Hello from France
Welcome to the Autodesk/AutoCAD Forums !
So you have a FDO drawing with many FDO layers (and FDO labels) ...
If you want to get standard DWG, you must "Export/Save the FDO Map as DWG"
At the Top-Right of the Map Navigator, you have an Icon named "Maps" (maybe) !?
So CLICK on it then Right Button then "Export/Save the FDO Map as DWG" ...
And you will get a standard DWG with one layer for each FDO Layer ON
Do you see that I mean ?
I am starting with a .dwg - i imported shape file into Autocad Map3D 2013. I have polyline regions that have data attached to them. I can display these "attribures" within Map3D but want to "export" these so I can use labels, or so they can appear (in the center of each polyline region) in regular autocad (non-Map3D/non-Civil3D).
not sure what software you thought i was working from? What is a FDO?
Thanks for your reply.
So the question is : are you using FDO features of MAP ?
Please use the command : MAPCONNECT ...
Have you already use this command to connect "directly" to GIS Data with SHP, SDF, SQLite, PostGIS, Oracle, etc FDO Drivers ?
Hello from France
Sorry for my "bad" answer (I thought you were using FDO features !) about your problem !
Olivier (an other Frenchie, I know him ...) understood well your question/problem ...
