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 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.

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?

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 :: Batch Plot 50 Drawings - Publish With Block Stamp?

Jun 20, 2012

I'd like to batch plot 50 drawings, all of which have the same title block in the same position. This is easy with the PUBLISH command, but I'd like to be able to add a "stamp" of the customer logo to these drawings, which I have as a block in a separate file. Basically I want to easily be able to plot the same drawings for different customers, the only difference being the customer logo. Is this possible?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Plotting To PDF Drawings Disappear When Go To Plot

May 25, 2011

So I have the educational version of ACAD 2012 and this is my first time using that version. My model is done and I formatted my layout with a border and the model to scale in the viewport. When I go to plot to PDF, all I see is the border. I've tried fiddling with colors and viewports but neither of those did anything.

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 :: Randomly Get Fatal Error Every 10 To 15 Drawings That Print?

Aug 23, 2011

When I am printing from AutoCAD LT 2012, I randomly get this error message every 10 to 15 drawings that I print. Considering that I print 10-15 drawings at one time, I am getting a fatal error every time I print a set. Why? I don't get this error when printing in AutoCAD 2011LT or 2012 Full Version.

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

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 - 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 :: Printing Multiple Drawings

Apr 10, 2006

Is is possible to "que" a bunch of drawings to be plotted? I would like to be able to open a drawing and plot it, then while it's plotting, open another drawing and plot it, then another and so on and so on. However, I get an error message stating that another plot is in process and only one plot or publish process can be active at one time. Thus, I'm forced to wait for the last one to complete before sending the next one to the plotter.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Opening Drawings And Printing Over WAN Is Slow?

Aug 13, 2013

Is there a way to increase the access time so printing is faster?

I have AutoCAD 2013 and access drawings over VPN (6 meg pipe).

Both opening the drawings and especially printing them take a very long time.

It takes about 8 seconds to open drawings, due to all the modules loading on the bottom-left of AutoCAD. Printing takes even longer than opening the drawings.

Is there a setting I can change to speed-up access time?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Long Delays When Printing From Drawings On Local Server?

Feb 8, 2013

When we print from a read-only drawing file that is stored on our local drawing fileserver (a PC on our network that is used to store all finished drawing files) it can take several minutes to open the Plot screen and several more minutes to actually print the drawing.  It doesn't matter which printer we use to print to.  Some of us have had this problem since AutoCAD 2010 but some have had it only since 2013.  However if we use an old AutoCAD 2007 there is no printing delay problem so the server doesn't seem to be the source of the problem.

If we print from a drawing file on our own systems (which is actually working off a local network server unless the server is down then we are working off our own computers that will re-sync with the server when it comes back on line) then there is no delay.  I have  made some local files read-only to see if that was the trigger but no, they printed just fine.

AutoCAD LT :: Publish Drawings To Overwrite Existing PDF Drawings

Apr 2, 2013

Every now and then I go back and try to use publish to speed up printing but I always go back to plotting one by one.

I work in a housing construction office and I have 10 separate drawings side by side in model space for house plans that I need plot separate to give to certain people. My problem isn't that I can't publish them separately its that I can't save them over existing pdf's individually predetermined. 

Q1. do i just have to go through and change every layout name before or after i publish?

Q2. how do i change the output publish location?

Q3. can each layout be saved to a different existing pdf and remember it?

Q3. can i save these setting across to a new drawing?

Photoshop :: PS7 Automatically Trying To Print When I Open Image?

May 25, 2008

When I open an image by double clicking on the file name, or by right-click > open in > photoshop, immediately up pops an image saying "Some Clipping May Occur" or the print dialogue in some cases.

But, if I drag the file into PS and drop it, it does not try to print it. So it seems to be something about actually "opening" a file that makes it want to print. I tried changing the file association to another program then back, but it didn't work. I'm using WinXP

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.
