Problems saving AutoSketch Drawings as DWG files!!!

When an autosketch drawing is saved in dwg format for use by autocad the line weights and styles are lost!!!!

I have AutoSketch - Version 9.0

This is really an aweful thing since AutoDesk toutes the following feature:

Compatibility
DWG Support—Because AutoSketch drawings are DWG™ format compatible, you can create and view AutoCAD drawings for enhanced collaboration with colleagues and clients.

NOT!!!!!!!!!!!

unless you don't care about line weights or styles!!!!!

Big disapointment here!!!!!!!

Did they fix this for Version 10?

It sort of works in v10. Your lines need to be polylines (or converted to polylines) for weights to be saved.

At the end of the day DWG support is pretty ordinary for a company that is so protective of the DWG format.
