We are have an issue when sending files to our clients. We are running Carlson 2017 with Map3d 2017. The issue is when setting the coordinate zone through Carlson and sending the finished product to the client we are being told that when opening the file in Civil3D that the coordinates are coming in Meters and some random coordinate zone (we have checked internally and see the same issue). When setting the Carlson coordinates it does not seem to be overriding the Civil3D settings, its like the settings are only good within Carlson. Since we run with Map3d engine we can check the Civil3D settings while in the drawing and have attached a pic of the settings side by side, has anyone else seen this issue? Tech support does not seem to giving us an answer to this problem so any input is appreciated.

Have you tried setting the same settings in "Drawing Setup" in the Carlson Configure command under the same settings drop down menu? Not sure if it will fix this but it may be worth a shot.
