export of colored drawings?

Has anyone come up with any new methods of keeping the colors (model colors & text colors)assignedin a Pro-E drawingwhen converting to either .dxf or .dwg? Also, what about keeping text style? I have been playing around with this, and the best I could come up with was to iges, but then all my hidden lines are now white. I would like to be able to save to a .dwg, and have it look exactly like my Pro-E drw.


Thanks,


Tim

The colors of the drawing are when exported to DWG the same as in Pro/E. But, you can control colors of exported drawings with "dxf_export_mapping_file [path_and_file_name]" option and dxf_export.pro file, where you define color mappings.


Following is an example of dxf_export.pro:


map_color BACKGROUND_COLOR 186
map_color DIMMED_COLOR 1
map_color LETTER_COLOR 4
map_color HIGHLIGHT_COLOR 3
map_color EDGE_HIGHLIGHT_COLOR 7
map_color GEOMETRY_COLOR 6
map_color HIDDEN_COLOR 1
map_color SHEETMETAL_COLOR 7
map_color CURVE_COLOR 4
map_color VOLUME_COLOR 3
map_color SECTION_COLOR 2
map_color DATUM_COLOR 2
