 Layer Description Plotting

I have started to use the plot with layers option in ZWCAD 2011 and really like the options that this gives me.

My issue is that our layer names are very specific to our company and our clients are unsure what they mean. I have started to use the Layer descriptions in the layer manager and wondered if there is a way to export these with the pdf?

In layer properties manager, select all of your layers then copy to clipboard. Paste into Excel, omit any columns that you don't need, insert that modified spreadsheet into ZWCAD. Or just paste all of the layer info into ZWAD; it comes in as one giant piece of text, but might still work for you.
