The exported document is created in the selected folder or project, and has a status of checked in.Note: There is nothing in the Comments dialog that visually indicates whether a comment is optional or required. If comments are optional, then you can click OK without entering comments.

If you click Cancel in the Comments dialog, the export operation will be canceled and the AutoCAD document will not be exported to selected format.
