Export Layer Selection and Mapping

After you've hit Save from the Select Output File dialog you'll have a chance to review and change the layer selections and mappings. A large dialog box opens up showing you the current settings as derived from the L-Edit database. If the selected layers and names are to your satisfaction you need only press OK.

If you are like me then you may have forgotten to turn off layers you don't want translated into DXF. In this example, I really only need the overglass layer since the pad openings are defined there. Everything else is superfluous and only makes the DXF file larger.

So I click on All Off to turn all layers off and then I click only on the check box next to the Overglass layer.

Hitting OK starts up the translation.
