Discussions about the development of the TechDraw workbench
You're welcome. It may get here the attention of the right experts. It may be helpful if you upload a file containing such lines which are not exported to dxf. Augment it with detailed steps what to do to reproduce the issue.
Even if such a model is very simple, it takes some time to build it, and every single helper would have to invest that time.
I used right click and the export command to export to Dxf . I have spent two days of my humble life to make export Dxf with dimensions or leaderlines work, but nothing achieved yet.
Do you really believe that Dxf export works ?

IMHO, just for now, it's not working 100%. You can, as a partial workaround, export in SVG, there it's working percfectly. DXF it's not a really good interchange format, as I understand.
It's not possible to use DXF as an interchange format for annotations, only for 2D Geometry reference, I failed everytime I tried to do that. This a good question in general to undestand how to send our works rich annotated to other people that do not use our beloved FCAD. In the real world, that's a pity, every professional it's using DWG for everything, so we have propietary standard everywere, that's a huge problem and the real obstacle to the FOSS efforts.
The export page command in TechDraw only supports DrawViewPart and DrawViewDimension. The exporter in the Import module can handle text - this is used for the dimension text.
We've never had a request for text before this.
There seems to be a move afoot to replace our 2 dxf handlers - https://www.forum.freecadweb.org/viewto ... 10&t=69491.
