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 Map 3D :: Print Preview And Plot Doesn't Work

Sep 27, 2011

I'm using AutoCAD Map 3D 2009.

I've created a simple drawing in CAD that contains a cropped JPEG, a two toned hatched polygon in behind it two MTexts overlaying all.

I cannot view them in either normal plotting, pdf format, jpeg format and even dwf. 

I've increased the ram used in the "Raster Extension Options" (2000 MB), I've set the plotting in the "Process Document" to "...In computer", I've saved it in older formats (2000/2004/2007), I've placed the drawing on both our public drives as well as the local, I've adjusted the "Raster and Shaded/Rendered Viewports" & "OLE" settings in the "Device and Document Settings" (None to Best).  Not to mention the other variations in the plot menu.

I've tried everything I can think of and have read through several threads here and nothing works.

What drives me nuts about this, is that I'm able to print from a layout with no problems a 3D drawing, with 2D hatching, an extensive title block with hatching and a secondary overall viewport (minimal detail) in the main viewport area.

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 :: PDF Publish Options Ignored

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Mac Doesn't Allow For Proper Printing On Their Plot Style Setting

Aug 29, 2013

I am a Mac user and new to AutoCAD. I am enrolled in a CAD class this semester and the instructor for my session is requiring Windows. Supposedly this is because AutoCAD for Mac does not allow for proper printing on their plot style setting. 

I understand that I can install Bootcamp and Windows on my computer, but I'd really like to avoid that if I can. If I were to do my work on my Mac and then digitally transfer my files to a PC for printing purposes, would my files become corrupted or compromised in any way?

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 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 Civil 3D :: Publish To DWF Doesn't Print Xrefs?

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.

Illustrator :: CC Custom Fit Print Doesn't Work

Jun 18, 2013

This is a serious workflow disruption: In CSx I could open any file, choose a print preset, click on 'custom' for Media Size and it would automatically adjust the print width and height to whatever the artwork boundaries were (Ignore Artboards ✓'d). Now in CC it just uses whatever I had set for the print preset when I created it rather than adjusting like bfore. Is there something I'm overlooking? Can/will this be fixed? This might sound like small pease compared to the overall view, but this makes a design that would normally take a few seconds to print to our screens to almost half a minute.

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 / Plot :: 2013 Not Printing On Network Printers

Aug 5, 2013

I cannot get my program to print to any of our network printers. I am using Autocad 2013 LT with FusionWare and Windows 7 on a Macpro OSX Lion. This started being a problem a few weeks ago and the only way I can get anything printed is to make a pdf and and then print the pdf from Acrobat.

Today I brought in a HP 940c printer from home and connected it to my desktop printer. I spent an hour uninstalling and installing the drivers. I can now print from Acrobat on both the PC and Mac sides of the computer, but when I try it from Autocad I get Error_Printing in the HP printer window. No info as to what the error might be. I tried this several times, tried renaming the file with a shorter name but since the driver puts in the entire path that was a futile gesture.

So I have confirmed that the printer is functioning correctly, just not with Autocad. I realize that i do have a working workaround but it is tedius and unnecessay to keep making all those pdfs.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Page Orientation Different Between Version 2012 And 2013

Copied the printer configuration (pc3 and pmp) from AutoCAD 2013 to AutoCAD 2012. Plot the same drawing with that same printer configuration. With AutoCAD 2013, it plots out fine - page orientation landscape. In 2012, it plots out wrong. The orientation of the drawing is correct, but the paper is changed to portrait?

The plot setting are exactly the same in both versions.
