AutoCAD 2010 :: Can't Work On Computer During PUBLISH LT 2012

May 15, 2013

Don't know if I need to check some other setting or this is just the way it is. When I use PUBLISH to plot a set of drawings, I can't do anything else on the computer. If I try to type in any other software, it is interrupted and the cursor moved away from the software. I am able to type maybe a couple letters in any software, then the cursor goes away, put cursor back, type 2 letters, repeat, interrupt, cursor back, 2 letters etc..

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish Command Won't Publish

May 9, 2013

Using AutoCAD 2013, myself and several other coworkers have encountered an error message when creating a pdf with the publish command. I attached a screen shot of it.

We never experienced this in earlier versions. It doesn't happen 100% of the time, but it has been recurring more in the past month. I have restarted the computer after receiving the message and then invoked the publish command after restart and it was successful. I'm not going to do this every time I publish, nor do I see the need to turn off background plotting. That just seems like a bandaid fix.

I even tried publishing with different page setups to determine if it would react differently to any page setup, but it doesn't. I attached a view of my publish window, as well.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: PDF Publish Options Ignored

May 31, 2011

I am using Autocad 2010, and have upgraded to windows 7.  When I publish to pdf using Dwg to Pdf.pc3, my options (single-sheet file, do not include layers, etc.) are ignored and I always get multi-sheet files with layer information included regardless of what options I select.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Publish DWF With Attributes - 2012?

Nov 16, 2011

There's supposed to be a way to publish a map to DWF and include attribute data from gis feature sources and joins, but I'm not able to get it to work, so perhaps I'm doing something wrong.

I have a map displaying parcels from an SDF connection and have joined it to a non-spatial SQL Server table so I can theme on ownership. The map displays exactly what I want, so now I would like to publish to DWF with attributes, but when I go to MAPDWFOPTIONS, the window doesn't present a list of attributes to select, it is simply blank. Have I missed a step someplace?

I'm using Map 2012 SP1 on WinXP SP3.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publish In Background?

When I publish a set of drawings in the background, the AutoCAD app keeps stealing focus of my open windows for each sheet that is processed. This seems to defeat the publish in background option. This was not an issue with 2008.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publish PDF Viewer Not Loading?

AutoCAD 2010 :: How To Publish Single PDF Page

Jul 12, 2013

we are working on circuit drawings which are lengthy and we usually split the model into more than 100 layouts and publish pdfs.So we get 100 pdf pages. When we view the pdf, we need to scroll down to get into next page.

Can we create a pdf for complete circuit in single page, where we can scroll the page horizontally. This will work in viewing the page horizontally with continuity in the circuit.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publish Drawing To DWF In Black And White?

Feb 23, 2012

I have been using autocad for 20 years plus. I've never really had to publish anything to DWF. We have a client that wants DWF's instead of PDF's. I have a 3D model with views in paperspace within viewports. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to plot these drawings to DWF in Black and White. I have tried everything. I am using monochrome.ctb plot style. The border and all border elements are plotting B/W but everything in the viewport is plotting whatever color it is in the VP. This is driving me nuts. Never liked this DWF format. If I plot to a PDF it all comes in B/W.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Can't Publish Single-sheet Files In PDF

Mar 1, 2012

I installed AutoCad 2011 on a new computer Win7 Prof Off OS. I'm trying to make single pdfs for each dwg that I have. No matter what I select it keeps making one multi page file of all my dwg sheets.

I've tried going under Publish Options > General DWF/PDF and I've tried both Multi-sheet file and Single-sheet file getting the same results.  I have the same problem whether I use Dwg to Pdf.pc3 or my Adobe.pc3 driver.

AutoCAD 2010 :: ARG File - Auto Publish Settings And Workspaces

May 8, 2013

When I created our custom profile ".arg" file, with two custom workspaces along with the OTB workspaces. I set the Auto Publish Settings to publish to PDF on Exit. With 50+ users, each can create thier own workspace for thier liking.

I have some users that like the feature, and others that do not. The ones that do not like the feature, want to turn the feature off.

So the question is if, under each individual workspace, we uncheck the Auto Publish feature, then save that workspace, is the feature turn off for JUST that workspace? Or does it cut the feature off for all workspaces?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publish To DWF Results In Large Black Areas

Mar 16, 2012

I have a drawing with multiple layouts which is of a road plan and profile in 2 view ports.

When I publish the multiple drawings to DWF the 2nd viewport with the profile in it is completely black, but when I plot to DWF a single layout, it works fine which I don't understand. Surely the publish command publishes to DWF with the same settings as when you do a single plot to DWF, no?.

I have attached an example of the publish result.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Auto Publish PDF Page Layout Settings

Apr 5, 2013

We are experimenting with turning on the auto publish to PDF on prompted save. (Options/Plot and Publish tab) This will be a very nice tool since we create PDF's of every dwg. that we create. However, I am having trouble locating the settings that control the page layout in this feature (The titleblock is not centered and is getting cut off when PDF is generated) but, When I preview the "standard" way of plotting to PDF, the drawing is fine. I assumed the settings would be one in the same?

I've got a user that has his page setups setup correctly and set current, but when he goes to the publish command it only grabs the model space.  even if he checks the "Initialize Layout" (and unchecks "Initialize Model") option in the context menu, it doesn't stick...

I have him rebooting now (we tried closing ACAD (and made sure the process had stopped) and then restarted ACAD and it still wasn't working)

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publish Files In Black That Are In Named Plot Style Mode

May 31, 2013

I need to publish multiple files that are in the Named Plot Style Mode in Black and White instead of color.  Is there a way to do that in 2012?  In previous versions it wasn't a problem.  Short of opening every single file and doing the convertpstyles I can't seem to figure out a quick way to do it.  Is there an option somewhere that I can change to make the Publish use the Color Plot Style Mode so that it will recognize the monocrome.ctb file?

AutoCAD 2010 :: 2012 Freeze Or Long Lag With Copy / Paste And XREF Placement

Feb 9, 2012

- Dell XPS 8300 running Windows 7 SP1 64-bit with 12 GB of RAM

- AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series with updated drivers installed

- AutoCAD 2012 64-bit SP1

- ACAD Hardware Acceleration is ON

This hotfix is already installed.

This particular file (and a few others) has an issue whereby the computer pauses for a LONG time whenever an XREF is placed OR a copy/paste system command is executed (not the COPY AutoCAD command, but Ctrl+C/V). I have audited and purged the file; there are no audit errors. I also tried recovering the file and it made no difference.

I checked one of the problemmatic files on my machine (different machine but still AutoCAD 2012 and Win7) and the same file has the same issues.

New files do NOT have this problem. I have attached the file. Steps to recreate the problem:

1. draw a simple rectangle

2. try to copy/paste it with ctrl+c/v

3. this other machine and my machine both pause for 8-10 seconds

I'm confident that it's something in the file, but I don't know how to track it down.

AutoCAD 2010 :: 2012 Plot Shaded Viewport Options Sketchy

How to use the "Shaded Viewport Options" in the Plot dialog box? We saw an option for Sketchy in the dropdown menu but I can't find any information about how to use it, or how to change the settings, or even what the intent is for it. When we have selected it and viewed in Preview it shows up as a mass of lines too dense to be usable. 

We are using AutoCAD 2012 on a PC in model space.
