I am trying to seamlessly import and export files to and from AutoCad 2017 to DataCad17.

I send files to my consultants. He or she makes changes to the file. They email me back the revisions to the file.
When I open the file; the text is extruded, the color menu adds 200+ colors, and the line colors are not the same as the original version I sent.

Attached is a screen shot of the options I have once I open the AutoCad2017 file.

Any suggestions to guide me in the right direction to get this resolved would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
