AutoCAD 2013 :: Wipeout Frames Visible In Plot?

May 1, 2013

I have set my wipeout frames to "off" however when I plot the drawing they are still visisble.

This sets the visiblity of the farmes within the drawing to off however when plotting the frames are visible on the print.

Been a while since I have used wipeout, not sure if this is a system bug or there is some other variable I have forgotten that will set frames to not plot ?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Wipeout Command Plots All Black In PDF Format?

Mar 7, 2012

I always try to use this wipeout command for electromechanical views that hide details so I don't have to  trim line entities. I create pdf files then plot the pdf files to a printer. Why does the printed wipeout fill in black when printing?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish In 2013 Doesn't Work?

Nov 21, 2013

I have C3D 2010, 2011, and 2013 installed on my pc.  I use the Publish command almost daily, and haven't had any serious issues with it when using 2010 or 2011.  But in 2013, when I publish it just sits on the same screen and never actually publishes.  I have tried turning off Publish in Background, I have checked that the printer support paths are the same as in 2010 and 2011, and I have tried Publish with different Page Setups.

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 :: DWG To PDF Cutting Off Parts Of Plots?

Aug 2, 2013

We recently upgraded to 2014 and have been experience significant issues with plotting to PDF. When plotting individual pages, we are able to center the plot and adjust the margins to where they will plot correctly. However, when trying to "batch publish" mutiple layouts of a drawing they all come out off center or parts of them are being cut off.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Plotting To PDF (fuzzy Plots)

Mar 21, 2012

I've been working on some wiring schematics lately and I noticed that when I plot to PDF (using both Adobe and the ACAD PDF plotter) my plots are coming out fuzzy.  It looks like I have a shadow around my text and lines.  In the attached graphic, the plot on the left was drawn about a year ago, the one on the right was done within the last two months.  I recently went in and changed the PDF plot setting to High quality print.  Ultimately,I didn't have this issue last year and as far as I can remember, I haven't made any changes to my plot settings.

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 Print / Plot :: Phantom Lines Appearing In PDF Plots

Jun 19, 2013

I'm having a problem with "phantom" lines appearing in PDF plots.

The Situation:

The firm I work for often uses Excel tables in Autocad LT 2013. I have learned through experience its better to use a linked table, but in this situation only paste special is an option due to time constraints.

Basically when we try to plot a DWG with tables specially pasted in the drawing space phantom lines appear.

But only when we try to convert to PDF. In the plot preview everything is fine, but when the PDF is created vertical lines appear in the tables on the actual PDF.

I've tried many different options to fix this but so far the only thing that has worked is, converting the DWG to a DWF and opening in Design Review. From there I plot to PDF and everything is fine, no lines appear.

In the DWG I have tried tweaking the Plot Quality for the "pasted" tables to no avail.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: OLE Spreadsheet Plots Solid Black

Feb 27, 2013

Just upgraded my PC and before when I select plot quality "high graphics" the spreadsheet comes out low resolution, if I use monochrome spreadsheets came out perfectly defined.

Now with the new PC High graphics still comes out the same but when I select monochrome all I get is a solid black block. If the OLE object is an image (BMP) it comes out perfect with monochrome,it only happens with excel files

I search the forums for an answer but the closest I found was changing the OLE type under properties (currently is embedded); problem is the field is grayed out and cannot be changed just as the source application (ms excel 2003)

By the way, on the older files created with my old PC if I just open and print them from the new computer they come out perfect; if I open the OLE file and modify it, the solid black block shows up regardless if I print to PDF or print on paper.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Background Mask Plots Partial Black On MText

Oct 16, 2012

I have this problem with my MText Background Mask. You can take a look at the two attachments. Each one gives me the same issue, but with different MText objects. I'm also plotting to a KIP5000 and a SHARP All in One, and I get similar results, except in some of the MText, they come out in a random color as well. The pc3's for all devices are set to Lines Merge.

The text is actually part of an xref file, and if I plot directly from the file they are in, I have no problem. I did a test where I copied the text into the sheet file, and got similar results when the text is in modelspace, and I got my intended results when the text is in paperspace. Now, this is the way I want to go...but the company standard is to draw it all in the xref, so I have to figure out how to get around this.

I've gone back and forth with the Merge/Overwrite options in the pc3, and when plotting to PDF and SHARP, I get the correct output with Overwrite, but the KIP just completely ignores the background mask with Overwrite.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Wipeout With DWG To PDF

Apr 11, 2013

We have recently upgraded from AutoCAD 2010 and are having an issue with our wipeouts not displaying properly when we make a pdf using DWG to PDF in AutoCAD 2013. 

It seems to happen when a wipeout is in an XREF and has many points, such as if you are trying to make it circular.  The wipeout does not seem to function (you can see everything behind it).

When making a pdf using adobe or just making a .plt using a printer driver it displays properly but not with the dwg to pdf.  I have tinkered with the display order, the display settings, the merge control setting, etc. so far nothing has worked.  I have gone into the file that is XREF'ed into my active drawing and made a pdf from there and it looks ok but not when it is XREF'ed into another drawing. I have many blocks that have "circular" wipeouts in them that are not displaying correctly.

AutoCAD 2013 :: DXF Underlay Plots Very Faint

Nov 27, 2012

I am having trouble getting a DXF underlay to plot clearly and boldly.  I insert the ref to the dxf, then, in paperspace, create viewport, etc.  I plot all files to pdf (seperate install) for record purposes.  When plotting this file, the dxf is very faint--even though the preview is very bold and dark.

AutoCad :: PDF Is Being Trimmed After Publish Or Plot

Jun 15, 2012

After either publish or plot-to-pdf, the pdf sheet of one file is being shown trimmed. I have attached two images of both, the pdf result and the layout screen shot to show the problem.

For your consideration, this problem appears in both ACAD 2010 and 2012, in cpu's that otherwise publish/plot correctly to pdfs. The problem seems to be file-related.

Also, the unwanted croping seems to be some sort of frame around the drawing; however, as you can see from the layout screenshot, the Page is correctly setup as the sheet shadow includes all of the drawing intended to be printed.

AutoCAD LT :: Plot And Publish Job Complete Popup Box

Sep 20, 2012

How do you TURN OFF the Plot and Publish Dialog box in AutoCAD LT 2012? 

I opened up the dialog box and chose to only notifiy me for "Errors Only"......but it still pops up for ALL my printing and then won't shut off unless I close it myself.....very annoying!   

I have turned off the notification for my OS setup but this is unique to the Autodesk software.

I have attached a word doc with my screen shot of the dialog box that pops up and then the larger box that opens up when you want the details.
