AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Publish Command And Overwriting PDF Files?

Aug 8, 2013

With Autocad 2013 we have found an unconsistant problem with overwriting PDF files with same name.  This only happens with publish command (ie, can just plot 1 layout to pdf and overwrite no problem).  The funny thing is, it doesn't happen all the time - just 50% of the files (and yes, the file is not in use when attempting to overwrite).

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 Civil 3D :: Overwriting Points Importing Fieldbook

Jan 4, 2013

We're moving [slowly, painfully] from LDD to Civil 2012. When importing a survey fieldbook in LDD, my method has always been to "clean up" the fieldbook during the import. Rather than search through the fieldbook text file manually, I'll let the import process find the duplicate, overwritten points, or errant linecodes, and then exclamate them or change them in the fieldbook and, if necessary, reimport the fieldbook. Figures and breaklines use the initial coordinate, for instance, so sometimes a reimport is (was) necessary.

So our survey crews "overwrite" points in the field for bad rod heights, angles, descriptions, etc... During the LDD import process that point number is flagged and I am given the option to overwrite/average/etc.... In Civil 3D I seem to be stuck with an average of the two observations, and I'm not even alerted about which point numbers come from these "multiple observations." So I've no idea without sifting through the often substantial list of point numbers which points have duplicate data connected to them.

I've combed through the import options and I just don't see what I'm looking for, which, in a phrase, is to be alerted when there are duplicate numbers in the fieldbook.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2011 - Overwriting / Modifying Control Point?

Feb 2, 2012

We have been processing/adjusting our field control observations in an outside program (Star-net) and then importing the control into our C3D Database through an import event (PNEZD File). Once the control has been imported we import our field data (.fbk file) through an import event as well. The problem that we are having is once you process a .fbk that uses one of those control points it "locks" the control point, so the next day when we get another field download and the control is re-adjusted, we can't update the control points in the C3D Database.

The only way we have found to get our newly adjust control into the C3D Database is too delete all of the "import events" that use the control point and then import our new control. This is a HUGE hassle.

Photoshop :: Overwriting PSD Files Causes Them To Be Invisible In Finder

Mar 16, 2012

OS X - 10.6.8
Photoshop CS5.1 (From CS5.5 Suite) AND Photoshop CS5
When we open a PSD file, then save the file overwriting the previous version, the file becomes invisible. I can use Terminal to set the file to visible, but when we save it again it becomes invisible again. We were initially working on a network, but it also happens when we try to save it to the desktop. When the files are saved under a new name, or in a new location, they are visible, it's only when overwriting. We have 14 Macs working on the same network, but it's only happening on one. We tested it with the same files on another Mac overwriting on the network, and it worked fine. Files that are overwritten and become invisible are then invisible to every computer, not just the one causing the issue.
This is happening with both CS5.1 and CS5.
The only work around we've found is to either individually set the files to visible, or set all files to visible. We can't leave all files set to visible because several people work on each computer every day, and one of them is bound to start deleting every file that they don't know what it is...

Photoshop :: Save For Web Not Overwriting Original Files In CS6

Aug 22, 2012

It doesn't always happen but when I use save for web to save an image it goes through all the motions as normal but when I go to view the image, I find that it hasn't overwritten the original file. It has happened to other people in the studio too so it might be something to do with our setup?

AutoCAD LT :: Publish Command Via Script

Sep 21, 2012

We are using a mixture of ACAD 2012 & LT2012. The command '-PUBLISH' is recognised in ACAD2012, but not in LT2012. Therefore several scripts that we have, to publish a .dsd file, do not function on the LT2012 machines.

What are the alternatives?

The end scenario is to be able to create a multi-sheet pdf file, from an .dsd file (that is automatically created via excel), by using a combination of .bat and .scr files - without user intervention.

NB: The .dsd file contains a list of page set-ups that are various views within a single .dwg file.

AutoCad :: Publish Command Not Working

Jul 3, 2013

My company just switched over to AutoCAD 2014 and for some reason the PUBLISH command is not working, or following through with the printing once we complete the required steps to plot.

We are able to select the drawings to be plotted (8"x11" sheets), then successfully bring in our page setup that we created with one of the drawings to be plotted (which we use the same template with the same limits on ALL of our 'drawing templates' we design with.

After we hit the PUBLISH button at the bottom it goes into the background and just stays there with no errors or anything After a little while we end up just having to cancel and plot individually.

We used TrueView to BatchPlot which is identical to the batchplot(publishing) in ACAD 2014 WITH NO ISSUES!

Photoshop :: Batch Processing - New Files Created Inside Action Are Overwriting Each Other?

Sep 8, 2013

I have 100's of flat images that I have to chop up into 3 parts and save as individual pieces to then load into a separate piece of software.

My problem is that when I start the batch, the 3 new images it creates for each image are simply overwriting each other when saving.

The options for serial numbers etc in the destination field of batch seems to only work for the original file opened, not the 3 new images the action creates/saves.

AutoCad :: Setup First Sheet Then Publish Command?

May 15, 2012

Trying to print multiple drawings. I setup up the first sheet then publish command. I select all the drawings and change the page setup and they all change to the first sheet. Then I press publish and only the first sheet goes. I went through a tutorial on You Tube and did everything but result is the same, only the first sheet.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Rtext Info Changes With PUBLISH Command

Dec 30, 2004

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?

AutoCad :: Publish Command Not Closing Temp Drawing After Completion

Dec 15, 2011

I have problem with 3 users from about 75. When using the publish command inAutocad 2010 (1 user) and Civil 3d 2010 (2 users) a temporary copy of the drawing is opened while the particular layout is being published but on completion this temporary copy of the drawing is not being closed. This is leading to problems when a user has lets say 5 drawings open that require publishing. When finished the user has 2 copies of each drawing open and sometimes my select the wrong drawing when making further changes.

I have tried a repair on Autcad but that did not work.

AutoCad :: PDF To Automatically Open When Auto Publish Command Is Complete

May 16, 2013

We have our options set to Auto Publish on Save (Autocad 2011). On some of our stations, the PDF will pop up automatically. This is what we WANT to happen. On other stations, the pdf has to be found and then opened to make sure it is correct. (this step, which is apparently way to difficult for some people, is not being performed, leading to extra work/time later to complete the project) I had everyone ensure their DWGtoPDF.pc3 custom properties was set to "open in PDF viewer when done" (and when they do a straight plot, it does come right up) It just wont do it when its thru Auto Publish. Mine is one of them that comes up just fine....I have looked at every setting I have and tried to compare with theirs, but it all looks the same.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publish Command When Set Plotter To 22x34 Sheet

I am having trouble using the publish command when I set the plotter to a 22x34 sheet.  We are able to print to an actual plotter just fine at that size, but when we try and make a pdf set at that size, it just errors out.  

The error I get is

AutoCAD 2013 :: Only Select Models And Not Layouts When Opening Publish Command As Default

Oct 31, 2012

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.

AutoCad :: Publish DWG To Multiple PDF Or DWF Files?

Apr 15, 2013

I have a client that needs me to deliver my drawings in PDF format as multiple files with a specific naming convention. What I am doing is publishing to multiple files then renaming each file individually which is time consuming and prone to error.

I was hoping to come up with a way to automate the process.

Here's what I have: Each layout contains a title block block, lets call it "tblock". Within this block there are attributes for drawing title, sheet number etc, lets call these attributes "dt", "sn" respectively. Each layout also contains an Xref which contains a block which has attributes for revision data such as date, revision, issue description etc Lets call the xref "XA1", the block "Xtblock" and the attribute I need "Xrev". In visual basic it might look something like XA1.Xtblock.Xrev

Here's what I need: export each layout as {sn} {dt} Rev {Xrev}.pdf

Now I have used VB to automate Excel tasks and create Database applications so I would describe myself as "handy", just not used VB within Autocad before. I have also not used LISP before either so I'm a bit of a layman in that respect.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Publish To PDF Is Making Locked Files

Apr 17, 2013

When I select multiple PS tabs and Publish them all to a pdf, the pdf file that is created has a small lock next to it UNLESS I select AutoCAD's default location (my documents). If I select a project folder and name the pdf whatever I want, it puts the small lock. If I let it put it wherever it wants, it doesn't.

Even if I change the default location through Publish Options, it will add the lock. I need to be able to select different folders every time so I need the option of selecting where to put it.

How to stop it from making files with the lock icon on them?

AutoCad :: Sheet Files Loaded In Publish Window

Mar 29, 2012

I am attempting to plot drawings to PDF's using publish. My problem is that when I have my sheet files loaded in the publish window, only some of them have the desired plot styles, I can't understand why this is.

I will go into a little more detail, when you select the page setup drop down menu and you are able choose the plot style you desire, various drawings don't have all of the options.

I am fully aware that you can just move a drawing that has the plot style to the top, select all of the drawings at once and you change them all but this is only a temporary solution.

AutoCAD .NET :: Publish PDF Files To Be Used By Accoreconsole For Batch Processing

Aug 6, 2013

We have written a .Net ACAD2014 plugin to publish PDF files to be used by accoreconsole for batch processing and we have found that dates contained with the drawing are incorrectly formatted using the American date format mm/dd/yy.

Within ACAD2014 using netload and executing the command, dates contained within the title block are correctly formated using the current culture information in this case en-AU (dd/mm/yyyy).

When performiing a netload within accoreconsole the dates are formatted as en-US (mm/dd/yy) even though when reporting the current culture from within accoreconsole it is reporting as en-AU.

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

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Can't Publish Multiple DWG Containing Objects To PDF

Mar 29, 2012

the issue is when i try to publish multiple dwg files which containing civil 3d objects including data ref to pdf it won't do it other whatever drawing is currently open.i kinda can see why. because the data ref reading is not programmed in when "invisibly" opening the cad files. xref are autocad native and it works.

so no warnings or anything. just publish the first one and told me it's done. i've seen this years ago when first started using civil 3d but then i just never complained here.

is there a solution for this? what i did before was obviously open each drawing. then publish, huge waste of time. making me hate my job because of repetative tasks. i almost always try to automate.

yesterday made a program to make one surface for each csv file there was hundres of them and basically 2 hour programming and 1 minute to process the files once got the program working.can read subfolders to find csv file too.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Linetype Will Not Publish Correctly

Feb 20, 2013

we use a custom treeline for all our drawings and as of late we can not publish this line type. The tree line will plot fine if you plot the individual pages but when you try to publish and plot all the pages as a group, it plots the tree line as a dotted line. I checked the plot styles and it's set to use object linetype. Like I said though it only seems to have this problem when publishing the drawing

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: No Exist In Profile Using Publish

I have profile sheets I set up using our template. If I plot the layouts one at a time. I can see the existing grade line in the plot. If I publish all of the layouts at once. The existing profile doesn't plot.

I've checked the layer freeze setting and made sure there is a defined page setup to use in Publish. It's the same setup they plot individually with. I get the same result if I plot directly to our Toshiba printer or to PDF using the CutePDF driver.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignments And Profiles Lost During Publish

Jan 30, 2013

I have two alignments with profiles, that when I publish either from the layouts, or from SSM, don't show up in the pdf. This includes the labels. If I do a plot of the individual sheets, they show up fine. There are other alignments using the same styles that publish just fine.

I had to repair the shortcuts to these two alignments. Not sure if that would have anything to do with it. Can't see how, since they plot fine. What's maddening is that I published a set of plans before repairing the shortcuts, and they came out fine.

I restored a previous version which required the shortcut repair, and it does the same thing.
