    but when i i open the file in cad i only see those pages as different layouts in autocad

    Are the drawings objects on the Layout space itself?
    try to check if there are any veiwports
    ....always perform Beyond what is expected.

    no idea
    i just converted a dwf file with several pages
    into cad format
    and each page became layout in autocad

    and i checked
    there are no viewports
    the model space is just blank even after i do zoom extents

    thanks

    So it sounds like everything is on the Layout then. Can you click on objects there and such? You can edit stuff in Layout-space just the same way that you do in Model Space. If you want to move it from the layouts to the model - try using the CHSPACE command I believe it's called (haven't got ACAD here to check) to copy between spaces.
