Non-english character sets exported incorrectly in DWG/DXF drawings

I'm exporting a drawing with Chinese characters to DWG, but the Chinese characters are not displayed correctly.

You can show different character sets properly also in exported drawings by setting variable XS_EXPORT_CODEPAGE in advanced optionssettings used to customize Tekla Structures for specific companies, standards, users, or user groups

In Tekla Structures, advanced options are settings that are used, for example, in a specific project or geographical area, or by a specific company.

In Tekla Structures, advanced options usually begin with the initials XS and are followed by the name of the function, for example XS_BACKGROUND_COLOR.

. It overrides automatic selection of codepage in export. The available Windows code pages are listed below. For further information see also Microsoft's support article on Language Identifiers and Locales. These instructions apply to other non-English character sets too, e.g Korean, Japanese and Cyrillic characters.

To change the code page in Tekla Structures go to  Tools > Options > Advanced Options > Export: set XS_EXPORT_CODEPAGE and choose code page from below.
