AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2014 - Layouts In DWG Stay In Perpetual Publish Status And Don't Plot
Jul 26, 2013
How come when I publish to plotter the layouts in a dwg in 2014 they stay in perpetual publish status and don't plot, but open same dwg in 2013, publish and almost by the time I get to the printer, all 7 layouts have printed.
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.
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.
Example: First Layout : Plotstamp resides on Layer 0 Second Layout: Plotstamp resides on Layer 3P Third Layout: EQPT-VC etc
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?
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?
Been attempting to batch plot numerous dwg files to a printer via publisher. Has been successful on 2010, however experiencing difficulties in 2012.
Method used open dwg file set page set up to that required save down dwg print>Batch plot add rest of dwg files to be plotted remove all layouts to retain only Model Space Highlight all dwgs Select page set up from currently open dwg file Publish
I've just downloaded AutoCAD 2014 Student Version, and I can't seem to make my status bar on the bottom work. It's pretty annoying, as I couldn't manage to find the solution yet, did the access path to it changed compared to previous versions?
It's just blank grey (where OSNAP, DUCS, and other fun stuff's icons should be).
I have made a couple of web templates that I would want to try and use to turn into a website. I make them all on PSCS, but I just wanted to know from the majority.....how would I make my photoshop work published into a web template?
after 2013 was installed in my colleagues computer he now has the option to include Layouts when opening the publishing command, which didn't happen before. It is a slight pain removing these from the selection to be published and I was wondering how I get it to only select models and not layouts when opening the publish command as default.
My layout is 11x17 and within the printable area displayed. Page setup is 11x17, Landscape But my layout gets cut off when Publishing to PDF. But is OK when Plotting PDF. I found an earlier post talking about PDF scaling having to be set to None. I found a scale setting in my CutePDF Writer that is set to 100%. There is not a None selection.
Another interesting observation is that Publishing will print the sheet upright. Plotting prints the layout rotated -90.
I am using Publish to print multiple layouts to one file.
I'm creating/selecting plot settings and apply them to my layouts.
The problem is when I open the plot dialog, the name of the page setup is not displayed. when I select the page setup name just created from the combobox, the setup is applied but the name still missing.
But this issue only combined with the new plot settings created in program. The existing page setups manually added from plot dialog are ok.The difference between the two type of plot settings is the .ISMODIFIED property is true for new settings but false for existing settings.
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.
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>.
Okay, so I have about 25 layouts on this particular drawing that already have a default page setup assigned to them. I just created a new page setup and want to apply it to these layouts...but I cannot. I can select the right setup in the publish window but it does not stay current after publishing.
The problem also comes up if I do a "-purge" or wblock the entire drawing as to remove weird elements. The pagesetups then show as missing.
If I create a new drawing and setup the page setup for the first time AutoCAD will ask if I would like to apply to all layouts. Where is this option for existing drawings?
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.
I have (unfortunately) the necessity to modify into some files (which are used as models) the print style preset.
These files, which are necessary for the realization of electrical diagrams, have inside hundreds of layout.
Each layout set default printing parameters, so as "Laser b/n.pc3," as the paper size "A4" scale "Scale to Fit", and plot style "Schemi.ctb", etc. ..
Is there a way to create a macro (a field unknown to me) or something similar, to automatically change in all the default layout, for example, the printer "Colori.pc3" and the print style in "Schemi_colori.ctb "?
I am trying to print of about 50 sheets of cross sections. When i go to an individual sheet and plot the pdf comes out fine, when i try to publish through sheet set, it put the table on top of the section view.
Both are creating the PDF with acroplot . I am using autocad Civil 3d 2013.
We use an in-house plotstamp (not the acad plotstamp) which uses rtext to show the file path and name. It works fine under all circumstances EXCEPT when we plot using the Publish command. The output from Publish shows the file path as the C:Documents and Settings... where the acad2005 software is installed instead of the correct network drive path where the dwg files are located.
Is there a secret setting somewhere that will keep Publish from changing the rtext? If we switch from rtext to fields, would that eliminate the problem?
One workstation out of 50+/- when we publish, does not show the drawing prefix on the sheets in the "Sheet Name" list. The attached file shows a good list but that one computer is missing the prefix and if we're attempting to publish several drawings in model space, they would all have the same name so AutoCAD will not allow it because they would all have the same name . How do i get this drawing name prefix back?
