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 :: Why Does Normal Plot Style Plot In Color

Oct 9, 2013

AutoCAD - Why does the Normal plot style plot in color? Black seems to make a lot more sense. Almost everyone in Architecture uses black prints most frequently so that should be the default. And you can't adjust Normal to all black. So what was AutoDesk's reasoning?

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 :: 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 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 2010 :: Missing Plot Style Table

Feb 6, 2012

Here's my problem:  I have a customized plot style table "SK.ctb".  I have it saved both in the appropriate folders on my computer and in a shared folder on the network.  Usually when I am working in a file and open the plot window, my plot table is available in the list at the upper right "Plot style table (pen assignments)".

Right now I am working in a drawing that was sent to me by another firm.  They of course didn't send me their pen assignment tables, not that I really care as I would rather edit the layer colors if necessary, but use my own.  The problem is that in the plot window it is only showing their plot styles - none of mine!  Theirs are all listed as missing, but I can't get it to even look for the plot tables I usually use.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Plot Style Wizard Error

Jun 2, 2011

OK, since installing autocad 2012, and installing the office profile, which directs to a folder on our server to our plot style folder. Fairly typical medium office setup where settings come from an AutoCAD Settings folder, from support, fonts CUI etc etc.

There is the plot style wizard shortcut in this folder. In past releases this has been ignored, however now every time you open a new drawing we receive the error prompt, "The following shortcuts in the search were invalid and ignored" and then indicates the file path location. What's the deal?!

Now while i shouldn't have to, yes i have simply attempted to delete the shortcut in question but it showed up again.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Adding Plot Style Table Search Path

Mar 25, 2010

We have a person in the office that would like to create their own .ctb file that we would like to have them to access but they will also need to access our .ctb files (Standard). We currently restrict access to the .ctb files as they can be alterered leading to problems for everyone printing. Is there a way to create another path so they we can have a locked folder of .ctb files and an unlocked folder for .ctb files.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish To DWFx Plot Stamp Layer

Aug 29, 2011

When I publish a drawing as a multipage DWFx (or PDF for that matter) with "Include Layer Information" selected, the Plot Stamp (Simple Date/Time and Text) comes out but on different layers on different layouts.

First Layout : Plotstamp resides on Layer 0
Second Layout: Plotstamp resides on Layer 3P
Third Layout: EQPT-VC

Some general information:
Autodesk AutoCAD 2011 64bit
Autodesk DesignReview - 2012
Adobe Acrobat X Professional

Layer 0 Is thawed/plotable and on in all layouts, viewports all layers, viewports.  It has at least one entity per layout

Is there anyway to rectify this and still use the built-in Plot Stamp?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish Vs Plot - Image Shifts And Border Cut Off

Aug 13, 2012

I have found that when I Publish, the drawing comes out shifted about 1/8" down and 1/8" left as compared to when I use Plot. Which of course is just enough to cut off the sheet border which is 1/2" from the paper edge. I am using the same Page Setup for both Publish and Plot, same drawing.

This is to an Oce TDS600, and it only happens with 15x21 paper size. All paper sizes are set to 0" border. Probably an Oce issue, but have any of you seen this before?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Plot Only Certain Items In Color Without Changing Everything Else To Black?

Oct 7, 2010

I am doing some engineering drawings in ACAD 2011.  I use multiple colors on-screen to discern between certain items, then plot everything in black, like I'm sure almost everyone out there does.  However, I would like to print only lines of a certain layer in differing colors.  Is there a way to have that one layer print in a different color besides black, yet still use multiple colors on-screen?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Plotting Grey Instead Of Black LT 2010?

Aug 11, 2011

how to stop AutoCAD Lt from ploting in grey... it doesnt seem to make sense to me why this is happening. We use to have Autocad 2007 and a lot of the files that we still work from were created in that. Everytime files are now plotted to pdf parts of the drawing appear a very light grey as oppose to black which is how they appear on the screen. In the plot style table in the page setup they are also black - and I have tried changing it from monochrome to custom pen assignments, nothing seems to change it. The files are usually in stb as oppose to ctb. whole page prints black or the colours that I have actually clicked on?

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 :: Printing Blocks With Named Plot Styles?

Dec 4, 2011

I am trying to insert blocks (nuts and bolts, external equipment, etc.) into a drawing that uses named plot styles. Then I want the inserted blocks to print with, say, 30% screening. I've tried different flavors for the blocks, By Layer, By Block, Layer 0, other layers, etc. The only way I can make this work is to go to the original block with Block Editor, and then change the individual lines to "30% Screening". It is pretty time-consuming.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Named Page Setups Don't Stay Assign To Layout Tabs?

Feb 24, 2012

We have, since moving to 2012 had an issue with our standard Named Page Setups in our DWT file staying assigned to the layout tabs. When you click up to plot a dwg... the Page Setup Name indicating that the Named Page Setup assigned to the plot configuration dialog box says <None>.  Even if you click in the drop down and select a setup... the name selected shows as selected after the box colapses... but then a split second later, the box defaults back to <None>.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Mac Doesn't Allow For Proper Printing On Their Plot Style Setting

Aug 29, 2013

I am a Mac user and new to AutoCAD. I am enrolled in a CAD class this semester and the instructor for my session is requiring Windows. Supposedly this is because AutoCAD for Mac does not allow for proper printing on their plot style setting. 

I understand that I can install Bootcamp and Windows on my computer, but I'd really like to avoid that if I can. If I were to do my work on my Mac and then digitally transfer my files to a PC for printing purposes, would my files become corrupted or compromised in any way?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Possible To Plot Using A Few Different CTB Files

Is it possible to plot using a few different .ctb files?  For example can I assign one .ctb file to the landscape xref drawing and another .ctb file to the architectural xref drawing and a third .ctb file to the civil xref drawings? It has been very time consuming to coordinate all the separate drawings to use one .ctb file.
