DWG files exported from DFT have callouts moved and flipped

We export dwg files for all of our sheet metal part draft files for our sheet metal shop.  We're on ST6, and do have the MP1 installed.  When the dwg files are opened, callouts are moving around. The arrowheads are still tied to the correct geometry, but the text moves.  In some cases, the text flips to the other side of the callout leader.  In other cases, we have one callout, then multiple other leader arrows that are tied to the main callout.  When the callout moves, the additional leaders does not.

 

The same issue exists in exported dxf files.

 

I've tried different settings in SEACAD.ini but none seem to correct the problem.

 

Thanks

Dave,

 

You should log an IR with GTAC so they can investigate.

If all possible prints those drawings to PDF and send them that way, unless they need the actually 2D. We've found over the years that DWG's and DXF don't translate very well to other systems. Very rare we send out a 2D drawing, maybe wire burn..
