I’m having a usability annoyance with layer colors and exported DXF. I made a line drawing with different layers, each layer had the appropriate color for our digifab rules (ex: red == cut, blue == dark etch, green == light etch). In each layer I also set the print color to match the layer color (which I expected to happen by default).
When I export to DXF, all the lines are set to color 256. The only way I can get colors in exported DXF is to change the Display Color for each line to “Custom” and set the color I want. This means that every time I change an object’s layer or add a new object I have to go in and set the Display Color by hand.
Is there an option/workaround that I’m missing?
