[PCB_FORUM] Re: Anyone have problems with DXFout on 15.2?

Have you tried changing the user created layer to Bottom_Shield instead of
Bottom Shield. Sounds stupid, but it might work. Maybe I'll test that on
my v15.2 install.

BTW, I do the CDSROOT change just like you do, so that's not the problem.
