Illustrator CC is not importing AutoCAD DWG file layers correctly

Jun 18, 2013 4:25 PM

In CS6, I could import (open) DWG files  and it would correctly categorize the input objects into separate layers. In CC, it is putting them into a group in a single layer,  which is a big usability regression. Is there a fix for this?

    It would be very helpful if they'd fix this! It defeats the advantage of using Illustrator to render acad drawings. Thanks for persevering.

    It's realy big problem for me but i figured out a way that you can make each layer on DWG as a one block. so when you open the file on illustrator u still be able to select each layer alone.

    Have you tried saving the acad file back to 2006? I think I saw a memo to that effect.

    There is no 2006 file... 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013. I tried all of them... It's the same.

    CC updated and now I am having an issue where the layers import but the objects are on diffferent layers than where they started out. Some of the dimension objects wind up on the walls layer the valence objects end up on the 0 layer amd all sorts of random objects land on the defpoints layer I never use the defpoints layer etc etc. I have to go through the file and select all the objects by stroke color then cut and paste in place everything in the correct layer. this is a new issue since the CC updated last week. Tried saving the autocad file back to 2000 and as a DXF.
