I am helping a college who is having issues exporting a Chief File into a CAD . dwg file.
The issue is, she had imported a .jpeg of a clients survey to draw over to create a site plan.
Now trying to export the file to CAD, it will not export the .jpeg with it (that we sized / rotated into place).
The other option would be just to import the .jpeg into CAD and re-size / rotate to fit, but wasn't sure if their was an easier way.
See the files attached.
thanks in advance for the help!

I am trying to do a presentation plan and am using a top down orthographic view with watercolor and overlaid lines. I can't get the resolution I need exporting an image from CA so I have sent the view to Layout as a live view. We also tried it as an image. The problem is that every time I try to create a PDF two walls disappear. The view box is large enough, so I haven't cropped the view, I've had our veteran Chief guy look at it, and we're stumped. Here is the result:
Here is the view in Layout:
And Here is the print preview:
Has this happened to anyone else? I have tried outputting this about a dozen times and the same two walls are cut off every time.
I am running CA Premier X12 on a Dell with these bells and whistles. I also have Bluebeam Revu as my PDF print driver in addition to the "Export" function in CA. I have tried to print and to export with the same result . Any help would be appreciated.
I've never seen this problem before - I "print" my layout sheets to Chief PDF, and the floor plan comes up with super-heavy linewieghts, making it virtually unreadable. No problem with the rest of my set including elevations, sections and roof plan. Any thoughts about what is going on?

Working on my first project in Chief. The attached PDF is a screen shot showing part of a PDF created in Chief and the layout page that the PDF was derived from. In the drawing I drew the triangles in the gable to represent louvered gable end vents. In the drawing, they are fine, but in the PDF, the triangles are shifted a couple inches.
Any idea what's going on here?
