Problem when exporting layers to DWG

I have a problem when exporting to DWG from Revit Architecture 2011..


The problem is when exporting the different layers into AutoCAD, line styles and lineweights doesnt follow. The Reason as far as I've found out is that our layernames have a () in it, eg. A09-M--(06), which is automaticaly changed into A09-M--_06_ when exporting.


Is there anywhere i can change the way this works, or is it a lost cause until i change all the layer names in our AutoCAD template to XXXXXXX_XX_?

It seems that Revit does not allow those parenthesis in the layer name when exporting from Revit to AutoCAD. One solution could be to use a routine in AutoCAD (maybe Lisp), to replace quickly all the ocurrences of " _0x_"  by "(0x)".
