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 :: 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 :: Print PDF To Current Plot Settings In Current Drawing Directory

Sep 29, 2011

Is there a macro/script/deisel that will automatically print a pdf (cute pdf autocad lt 2007) to current plot settings in current drawing directory and give it the current drawing view name and number? Disk space not a problem these days and would save time to have a pdf copy of all drawing tabs readily stored in the directory ready for issue.

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 :: Plotting Several Sheets At Once

Sep 21, 2011

We use several different printers at our company, and one thing that I find really bugging is that I have to change the plot settings on each sheet, if the file has been worked on by someone else.

Is it possible (for example) if I've got 7 sheets set up, they all have an A3 drawing set up (correct extents, pen settings etc), for me to highlight all of the tabs and just change the printer? Rather than going into each sheet and manually changing them?

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 :: 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 :: 2012 PC3 List Order

Mar 28, 2012

I have all of our .pc3 files on a server, and have created them in the order I would like to see them, however they come in a random order. I have moved them out of the folder, and back in the order I want with no luck. I tried renaming them with numbers in front, and then with letters in front to try and populate the list in a certain order. I only have 16 .pc3 files and MAXSORT is default at 6000.

We are using page setups as well which are not a problem, but the occasional time we need to print to a specific .pc3 file gets annoying having to sort through the list to find the one we want.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Publish Only Prints One Set Of Sheets When Set For Multiple Sets

Dec 31, 2013

I'm having an intermittent issue with my publish command.  So far the pattern seems to be on drawings with a larger number of sheets (last one was 15, this one is 7).  When I get the publish dialog box, I'll set the number of copies to however many I need but it ends up only printing one set.  It doesn't happen every time.  Just with these two drawings so far.  They have nothing to do with each other and haven't shared any data.  The only similiarity is that they're both older projects that were started some years ago on previous CAD versions.
