DXF Mapping Tool, Only Map Entities that are not on Layer, and Bend Lines

I am attempting to use the DXF Mapping tool and I am running into issues with bend lines for sheet metal parts.


The tool works perfectly when I do not have "Only map entities that are not on SolidWorks layers" checked. I have a "Bend" layer and it picks up the line layer entity centerline.


I have been requested by our laser cutter to have different text items on different layers so that a note that defines attributes of the part are on one layer and bend note is on a different layer. So without knowing a better way to do this turning on "Only map entities that are not on Solidworks Layer" seemed like the best option.


But when I do this, the bend line does not get applied to any layer. It goes to the 0 layer, changes its color to green, and changes the line type to Center X2.




(Grey are tangent lines which are for something else)
