AutoCAD LT :: PDF Print From Paper Space - Slow Preview Then Will Not Complete The PDF Plot

Sep 20, 2013

Have a dwg with two layouts sheets that print to  pdf in paper space - one layout works just fine the other NOT.

Both include one view port and a few small details as pdf underlays(@ 150 kb each) in the PAPER space layout.

The problem  sheet -  ran a very slow plot preview but it did complete a full view of the layout,  then when selected to do the plot it never completes the pdf.

I tried a pdf plot of the same area in MODEL space and it previews just fine and plots to a pdf just fine.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Station Labels Not Annotated In Paper Space?

Mar 28, 2012

I am having a problem where my station labels are the correct size in model space, but when I switch to paper space they stay really small. I think it is a mm/m problem but can't seem to find a solution in the properties of the station label group. If I type a piece of mtext it works fine.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Text Objects Not Printed In Conceptual Paper Space Viewports?

Jul 3, 2012

When printing a paper space viewport in Conceptual Visual Style mode, text objects are visible in the print preview but not in the printout on paper. Why are they not hidden in the preview if they are not going to be printed?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Text Alignment In Paper Space

Aug 15, 2013

just wondering if any of you know the command that I can use in order to align my text in papr space. I'm running 2011 and 2013 C3D. I have several callouts that are in a row, and I COULD draw a line straight down and just move them all to it, but that's a very inefficient way of getting this done. At the last company I worked, we had a command in the system simply called LINEUP that would align any text we wanted either horizontally or vertically. If this is a button I can create with code or whatever, I could try to do that too, if necessary. Just might take me a while to do the code, but I know there's a more efficient way of performing this task.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section View Label Text Size In Paper Space

Sep 11, 2013

When I use a layout size such as A3 in paper space, the section view label text size is the same as it is in model space (when both annotative scales are the same). However, when I choose 11x17 as a layout size, the section view label text size is exetremly small.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Print Margins Different In Paper Space And Preview

Feb 21, 2013

I have a layout with a border that is alligned very well in the layout view (see attachement 1) but the whole thing somehow moves to the left when I preview the plot (attachement 2). I thought the dashed lines were supposed to indicate my printer's plot area. Is there a way to fix this anomanly? I have tried to play with page setup options, application options, but nothing works.

2 of 3 viewports in paper space do not show up in print preview, nor will they print. The viewports are all on the same layer, defpoint layer. Even if I create 3 new viewports and erase the old ones, still can only print preview one viewport and only one viewport will print.

AutoCad :: Text Doesn't View In Same Model Space / Paper Space

Aug 24, 2012

ACAD 2010 text doesn't view the same in MSpace and PSpace! Model space is the acad default text: txt Paper Space it appears as it should as Romans. The drawings print as txt and not as it should Romans! When I change the text in model space to Romans, save the drawing, enter PSpace and the return to MSpace, it seems to 'reset' back to text!

This is specific to my workstation BTW, when I open the dwg file on a colleagues PC it opens Romans in both Model and Paper space.

AutoCad :: Locking Out Model Space While Editing Text In Paper Space

Oct 24, 2012

I use x-ref's inserted in model space and label in paper space - always.

I would like to see a way of locking out model space while editing text in paper space. Unless you double click right on the text, you often end up in Model Space...I know - big deal right? It can become annoying or a big deal when a deadline is looming - when is one never? Also big fan of locking viewports.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dynamic Blocks Showing In Model Space But NOT In Paper Space

Mar 22, 2012

I am a landscape architect trying to xref in civil backgrounds. I have noticed twice now from two different civil firms that some of the civil symbols (dynamic blocks) are having visibility issues in paper space. No the viewport layers are not turned off or frozen. No the views weren't placed using the sheet set manager. Yes the blocks are created on layer zero and yes the associated layer is not off or frozen. I don't believe these blocks are annotative blocks. They appear, as expected, perfectly clear in model space. I just toggel over to paper space and "poof" they've disappeared.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Station Ticks Display In Plot Preview But Do Not Plot

Nov 29, 2012

I have a stationing line.  I've used the block PTTICL to make ticks.  The ticks display perfectly.  I'll run through a plot preview and the ticks show on the plot preview.  I push plot go to the printer and the ticks are not plotted.

I've checked the layer.  They are on a layer that should print.

I've checked the block.  The block is created on a layer that should print.

I've run through a number of options regarding the alignment label properties and found "display" to be equal to "true."

Everything else plots just fine. Only the station label ticks refuse to plot.  My project is fairly short so the work around was to put a poly line right on top of the tick mark.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Export Drawing From Paper Space - Small Details In PDF

Jun 1, 2011

I've run into a small problem while trying to export a drawing from paper space as a PDF.  The drawing is of an electrical panel for a product.  The panel is rather large, but the drawing includes some smaller details, such as a vendor logo on a component or a few extra lines on the border of a display screen.  We have a large, multi page PDF file that uses A4 paper size that I need to insert this drawing into, so the export must be at this size.  When exporting, I have CAD set to use monochrome and ignore the line weights, which solved my initial problem that the parts would show up as solid black splotches.

Now that the back story is over, here's the problem.  When I export the pdf, everything looks great except these small details around the components.  For some reason, the lines in the components will shift to one side or the other, causing breaks between features.  Most of these breaks occur between an arc endpoint and a line endpoint.  The export also excludes some smaller bits of geometry.

AutoCad :: Cannot See Text In Either Model Space Or In Paper Space

May 2, 2012

I have been working on a set of residential drawings. I Have read several different ways to achieve text size when plotting.

I currently have all my text and dimscale set to 0" height. I have the 'scale dimensions to layout (paper space)' radio button checked. However, I cannot see even the slightest hint of test when looking at my screen. I sent a dwg to a friend of mine who plotted it. no text was visible. What height should I set the text to in order to achieve an 1/8" tall plotted text? I cannot see text in either the model space or in the paper space.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Missing Labels On Plot?

Feb 14, 2013

i'm having an issue with C3D 2013, i have a plan drawing, with various layouts linked with a sheetset. I'm having trouble when plotting them from the sheet set. It doesn´t plot my alignment labels. Also happening on some other drawings like plan and profile. If i do plot them one by one from the drawing, they plot fine. The problem is that it's a lot of drawings to be ploting one layout at a time...

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Band Labels Keep Disappearing And Won't Plot

Aug 13, 2012

I am running CV3D 2011 on a Windows 7 64 bit workstation.  I have a road profile that has a band which labels the existing and proposed profile elevations.  For some reason the profile band labels (including the stations)  randomly disappear and all you see is the band box.  If you REgen they will reappear but will dissapear again when you plot preview and they WON"T plot...even though they are there in the drawing!

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Raster Plot Device Causes Labels To Rescale Improperly

Jun 22, 2012

Two different plot settings (saved as page setups) will produce different results for exactly the same 34"x22" output.  I have been bucking this problem since I started using AutoCAD C3D. I have a program to adjust the label scaling of my point labels so they are readable in both model space and layouts and when non-raster plotters are used, but now I must adapt it for other C3D labels before I can use them.

Below is my setup for plotting ANSI-D (34"x22") TIFF files at 288dpi.  I have been using this plot device and setup almost exclusively since about 2001.  The output is 9792 pixels x 6336 pixels which is set as a custom paper size to match my 288 dpi resolution (it is 288dpi because that is a multiple of 72dpi which is the default resolution of AutoCAD's TIFF raster output.  It is 72dpi regardless of the fact that the plot scale is specified as 288 pixels = 1 unit or 288dpi).  I must reset the dpi to 288 using image software so the resulting PDF will have a size of 34"x22" instead of 136"x88".  You can see in the preview output I captured that their size difference cannot be attributed to these size differences.  The plots are of the exact same layout showing point labels with only the page setup changed.

PDF Plot Setup 

TIFF Plot Output (34"x22")

PDF Plot Output (34"x22")

how to get Autodesk to address or even acknowledge this label scaling error?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Plot Map At On 24 X 36 Paper And Keep It To Scale?

Jun 18, 2012

I am trying to plot a map at on 24 x 36 paper and keep it to scale. It appears I have all of the correct settings including 1"=1', fit to paper is unchecked, etc. My print preview comes across correctly but when I go to plot a message appears in the command line stating

Effective plotting area:  26.00 wide by 18.00 high
Effective plotting area:  13.63 wide by 6.22 high
Plotting viewport 2.
Effective plotting area:  13.77 wide by 6.25 high
Plotting viewport 3.
Plotting viewport 1.

The plot then comes out on paper way larger then 24x36 and the area plotted is limited to the 13.77 x 6.25.  My co-worker opened the drawing and printed it to scale on 24x36 no problem. What gives? I cannot find a setting to get it to plot correctly.
