Dimension knockouts should work with compatibility mode on or off. Compatibility Mode On allows for ordering to allow entities to be displayed above knockouts depending on your view/pen ordering. With Compatibility Mode off, Knockouts knockout everything above and below the knockout so nothing prints in that area, but this only happens in Datacad.

If you export a file that has Compatibility mode Off to DWG it exports the knockout orders the same as if it had Compatibility Mode On meaning you still need to be aware of the proper layer/pen ordering.

Can you post screenshots along with your pen table? I still think this is probably a pen table issue as before.
