AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Incomplete Graphical Content In PDFs Created Via Publish To PDF

Dec 20, 2011

The Publish to PDF option in the Sheetset Manager which I believe is using the native/built-in AutoCAD 2012 PDF driver is creating PDF's with incomplete and inconsistent graphical content.  See attached PDF examples wherein the PDF "...(CONTENT GOOD)" created via CutePDF Writer contains the desired output...

Note both PDFs were plotted with essentially the same plot settings, driver excepted...

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 :: 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 :: Putting Bookmarks In Multi-Sheet PDFs?

Oct 14, 2011

I have found that if you publish to single-sheet .pdf's and then combine the .pdf's into one file using Acrobat, each sheet is bookmarked using the name of the individual files for the bookmark names.  However, if you publish to a multi-sheet .pdf, no bookmarks are created.  Is there any way to create multi-sheet .pdf's in AutoCad and have bookmarks automatically inserted (using the name of the layout as the bookmark name)?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: PDF Publish Options Ignored

May 31, 2011

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.

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 Print / Plot :: Publish Sheet Name Is Missing Dwg Prefix

Oct 8, 2012

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?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Change Path For Auto Publish

Feb 22, 2012

I'd like to start using the auto-publish feature in Autocad, however the options for the file location are pretty limited. I'd like to set it to something like the following:

../transmittals/current issue/

but the options I'm presented with is either an absolute location, or the drawing folder or subfolder.

Is there a sysvar or a registry setting I can tweak to make this behave to my liking?

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 And Automatically Load All Open Drawings?

Sep 20, 2011

I don't remember ever using this checkbox on the Publish dialog box but today i want to and i can't figure out how to make it work. The help file ~seems~ to say that if i select this, the contents of all open documents (layouts and/or model space) are automatically loaded.... but they don't.

I know i can pick the Add Sheets button and manually select all the drawings i have open but doesn't that defeat the purpose of this checkbox?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish Command Failing When Publishing To PDF 22x34

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: PUBLISH - No Longer Asked About Saving Current List Of Sheets?

Dec 12, 2012

When we publish we are always asked if we wish to save the current list of sheets.

See attached screenshot.

One of my users no longer gets this option.

Every time he publishes the program goes directly to the Save List As dialog box so he can name/save a .DSD file.  He no longer gets the option of a box asking him if he wants to save the current list of sheets.

My guess is some variable got changed that has removed the option of being prompted about saving the .DSD file.

P.S. We're using AutoCAD 2012.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Size PDFs That Are Not Full Or Half Size

Feb 17, 2011

Our supplier sent us some wierd size pdfs that are not full size or half size. I am trying to resize them to full size pdfs (Arch D) but am unable to figure this out in Acrobat.

My work-around is to insert them in AutoCAD and scale them based on known dimensions, then print to pdf. Unfortunately the resulting file is collosal and the quality degraded.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Get Batch Plot To Plot PDFs To Single File

Sep 30, 2013

I have just switched over to 2014 and i cannot for the life of me get my batch plot to plot PDF's to a single file! Instead, it's printing all 37 layouts separate. I tried switching between multi-file & single file in the publish options, but nothing!

i know that it took me a while to perfect my settings the last time i set up a new version, but i am struggling to work it out now.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Change Plot Setup To Multiple Sheets For Use With Batch Plot

May 21, 2013

I have one drawing per file at model tab. When I need to plot a multiple page file, I use:

Print > Batch Plot.

The problem is that I have to set plot configurations ( plot style table, plot area, paper size, etc) in each file before use Batch Plot.

Now I received 722 files with a wrong Plot Style Table. For this time I change the associated *.ctb file at Plot Style folder, but I will need to associate the right *.ctb to each drawing. It's also common to have to change other properties.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Publishing To PDF Is Created Layered PDFs Even Settings Are Off?

Oct 24, 2012

I have been ateempting to use the DWG to PDF.pc3 to batch convert a bunch of drawings to PDF. Everything appears to work well but I keep getting layers in my PDF's which I do not want as the slow down printing. I have turned off "include layer information" in the pc3 custom settings and I have also set "Don't include" in the publish options.

I am obvisouly missing something somewhere as I continue to get PDF's with layers.

AutoCAD Architecture :: PDFs Take Forever To Plot

Jan 24, 2012

Every time I try to plot something with a PDF embedded it takes a very long time to spool and plot. Additionally, a PDF in the drawing slows it down so significantly it's almost not worth using..This happens whether the PDF is less than 1 MB or 50 difference. Has this been fixed in 2012? Why to PDF's do such a drain on system resources when they're such small files to begin with?

AutoCad :: Batch Plot To PDFs In 2010?

Jan 6, 2010

AutoCAD MEP 2010

I've used batch plot to make pdf copies of my drawings in version 2004 and did not have this issue:

In 2010 when I use batch plot to pdf (say for 5 drawings), it produces one single pdf file with 5 sheets. I want an individual pdf file for each drawing (5 pdfs).

I don't want to have to open each drawing and plot. That's what batch plot is for!

AutoCAD 2010 :: Plot Transparency And PDFs

Jun 8, 2011

I am having a problem getting PDFs to plot when I have plot transparency on.

I use the dwg to pdf plot function and with plot transparency on... my hatches work perfectly but my PDFs appears very much screened.  (As a 50% or more screen would look) If I turn off the plot transparency, the pdf works perfectly but of course my hatch shades obliterate any line work beneath them.

 I was able to convert the PDF to a .tiff, with a graphics program... increase the resolution to 600dpi and use imageattach to bring that in.  But it is an extra step for each insert and increased dpi = increased file size.

Other than increasing the resolution on the PDF, any way around this "screening" issue on PDFs when plotting with transparency on?

AutoCAD Architecture :: PDFs Don't Show Up In Plot Preview

Apr 24, 2013

I'm running Autocad Architecture 2013.  My .dwg has about 15 pdf's in it (from a consultant that does hand drawings that I scan in, and use the image manager to insert into my drawing).  The PDF's range from under 1mb, to 10mb.    The PDFs are in model space and within my various drawing sheets, I show them in my drawing sheets via multiple viewports.  I noticed that when I go to plot a sheet that has pdfs shown in viewports, and click on PLOT PREVIEW, the PDF's don't show up - everything else shows up, linework, jpegs, etc, but not the PDF's!   I fiddled with the viewports and noticed that if some part of the PDF's image frame was visible in the Viewport, the PDF would appear in Print Preview.   But if the viewport sat directly over the PDF's image frame, the PDF would not show up in the Plot Preview!!!

Could it be I've exceeded the maximum number of Viewports in my entire .dwg? (I have about 16 sheets),  Or, could it be some mysterious autocad system variable that I'm running up against.

Illustrator :: CC Produces PDFs With Missing Content

Aug 7, 2013

I have a business card file created in AI CS6. The file has two identically-sized art boards with crop marks. All the fonts are outlined, there are no linked graphics. I've opened the file in AI CC, made some minor changes, and tried to save as a PDF. When I open the PDF in either Acrobat Reader or Pro XI, there is no content, only the crop marks.
Interestingly, the desktop icon preview, and the open dialog box preview both show the content, and when I open the PDF in AI CC, the content is there. But when I open the file in either version of Acrobat, the content is gone. Just the crop marks show.
