Saving dgn's as dwg's - curves turn to straight lines - help!

Saving dgn's as dwg's - curves turn to straight lines - help!

Saving dgn's as dwg's - curves turn to straight lines - help!

(OP)
I work in Microstation, but I am often having to save files as dwg's. I've finaly cracked the line weight and line style problem, but there seems to be one more problem that is bothering me!

When I save my files as a dwg, all of my curves and circles turn to straight lines! for example, a circle would look like a hexagon!

Any help would be really appreciated!

Alex,

This sounds like your display resolution setting is too low in AutoCad.  In Autocad, under tools/options/display, set the display resolution to 1000 or higher.  That should smooth out the segmented circles.

Thank you very much Mike! You were spot on! That had been causing me such a headache!
