1. The export from RVT to DWG format gives as a result a number of drawings equal to the pages in RVT file. Therefore we have 14 dwg files( for example) instead of one rvt file. Is it possible to make it one dwg as the original rvt?

2.Every one of these exported dwgs have drawings in the Model Space in an approximately the same positions towards the point @(0,0). Therefore if we're trying to gather up all the information in one file we have to copy all the elements in different positions. Therefore we could not use the original paper space adjustments. Any ideas?

3.In the exported dwg file the hatches are in the same layer as the element that is hatched. Therefore they are with the same linetype and lineweight as the element. Is it possible to set the hatch with lower lineweight and much lighter colour than the element?

4.Viewport  bounderies in the exported dwg are not like the one in the original rvt file. After the export  in dwg we have viewports with the sizes of the Annotation Regions in rvt. Therefore they are much bigger and not in the right possitions, sometimes they are crossing each other. Is there a way to export the Model Regions instead of Annotation Regions in the dwg?

5.In the exported dwg file the blocks that are usually used in paper space (like Tag detail or Section Callout) are in Model Space and are exploded. Any ideas?

6.In the exported dwg file the dimension style changes (it is getting worst) . Therefore the ploted copy of this drawing is not the same as the one from the original rvt file. Is there a way to have an identical paper space from the exported dwg and the orgiginal rvt file?

7.Block in the original rvt fiile is exported in a variable number of blocks in the dwg. The number depends from the number of the viewports and positions of the block that are visible in paperspace. Therefore the dwg is getting bigger and heavy to work with.

8.All dimensions from the original rvt file are exported into blocks in the dwg files. Therefore the dwg is getting bigger and heavy to work with.

9.If we are exploding a block of an element of the original rvt in the exported dwg (for changing the layer of the hatch for example) the object turns to hatch & lines. Therefore it is much harder to work with it.

In general - we are looking for the best scheme of co-operating with AutoCAD and REVIT programs. Any suggestions in this issue are wellcomed. Thank you
