What do you mean by "original coordinates"? MAPublisher will read a DWG just fine but since DWG doesn't store projection information you'd have to indicate that yourself if you want any meaningful scale out of it.

When I point a mouse at some point (with MAP Location tool), there are coordinates that are not similar to the coordinates of the same pŠ¾int in the *.dwg file.

Hmmm... Do you have a screencapture image you can post? I would like to help but I would like to make sure what you meant by " there are coordinates that are not similar to the coordinates of the same pint in the *.dwg file".
