I am attempting to Convert a DWG to a geodatabase for online publishing and use in collector. The conversion itself is fine, however I am also attempting to maintain style, i.e. annotation, colour, etc.

I have exposed autocad_color but obviously this is a numeric value, rather than RGB or something ArcGIS Pro can work with. I have also attempted to expose fme_color but that will not appear as an attribute. What am I missing?

@StephenSontag3just noticed your kudos here and thought I might be able to help a little.

 

CAD colour codes do translate to RGB, but I've not found a quick way of doing it. The best I've found is:

Thanks @BenSmith6. Do you add those color codes into an attribute/tag in the shapefile or dwg?  Trying to Export to CAD with specific styles but finding it hard to create a correct SEED file.
