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 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 2013 :: Closing Command Line

Apr 3, 2012

I turned off the command line because I don't use it or need it on my screen.  But each time after I do a plot preview the stupid thing automatically turns itself back on.

Is there a way to permanently turn this thing off because apparently hitting the "x" on the toolbar isn't working correctly.

Also, why did they do away with the flyout option on the commandline.  At least then I could dock it somewhere and collapse it.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Drawing Keeps Saving To A Temp File?

Aug 1, 2013

Whenever I save a drawing, it goes to a temp file. I have to do a 'save as' to bring the dwg back to the original folder. Our in-office guru thought it had something to do with the new AutoCAD 360, but I have never even signed in to that, and when we did open it, nothing was in it.

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!

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 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 LT :: Get A Crash When Closing A Drawing?

Aug 9, 2012

About 50% of the time, I get a crash when closing a drawing.  When this happens, I get the following message: "AutoCAD LT Application has stopped working".  This has been going on for sometime now and sometimes I am prompted to report the error, sometimes not.   Everything shuts down, so if I have several drawing files open, I will loose any changes made unless I do a hard save for each one (which I have gotten used to doing).

I have the same problem with my license of Architectural Desktop 2004.  My version of LT is 2011, running Windows 7 Pro, 64 Bit.

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 :: 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 2013 :: Crash When Closing Drawing

I am using Windows 7 64 bit laptop. When I close a drawing just after saving in AutoCAD 2013 64 bit, the program crashes. This will happen with one drawing open, or several. I also had this problem with 2011.

I have been using AutoCAD for 16 years and never had this problem with previous versions on earlier operating systems.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Losing 3D Views When Closing Drawing

Oct 12, 2012

I have a prob with my system in that when I close a drawing with a 3d view in a viewport and reopen it, I lose the 3D view and it flattens out, maintaining the view but losing all perspective.  I can easily restore the saved view, but it is bit irritating.

AutoCad :: Closing Dynamic Blocks - Drawing Slow?

May 30, 2008

Quick one on Dynamic blocks.... we are using Dynamic blocks more and more as a company, we are finding that when in a drawing which contains lots of dynamic blocks, then go into Dynamic Block Editor - amend the block - Then when closing the block Editor to get back into the drawing the drawing goes really slow untill we close it down and restart it.

Is there a setting we need to change OR is there something obvious that we are missing. i.e should we be minimizing the amount of dynamic blocks in our drawings or uncomplicate them?

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

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.

Photoshop :: Command S Works Inconsistently And Displays No Warning Dialogue Box When Closing?

Apr 8, 2013

I am having a very strange issue with Photoshop CS6 - OSX 10.7 and 10.8 (recently upgraded).I havent been able to figure out how to reproduce this bug though it happens all the time every day while i work. 
I work on a file maybe for 10 minutes to 1 hour and when I save a file with command s photoshop does nothing.  it will not save until i make any change that registers in the history and then it does save. 
Even weirder photohop will close the file as though it had been saved giving no warning box with the "file has been changed, would you like to save?" message.
This has lead to me constantly saving things and double checking if files are saved,  it has also lead to me missing a file from time to time and having to redo hour of work. The issue started happening when I recently reformatted and reinstalled all my software.

AutoCAD 2010 :: No Refresh After Closing Drawing Until Application Window Is Resized

Apr 10, 2012

My AutoCAD 2012 installation has been doing this for a while, but I don't remember it always doing this:

After I close a drawing (if it is the last drawing open), by using either the "close" command or by clicking the "x" on the window, instead of going to the generic gray-stripe background it just shows what the drawing looked like before close.  This keeps messing with my head, as I think AutoCAD has just stopped responding.

If you look closely, though, you can see that the "AutoCAD" and "Autodesk" labels appear on the drawing, but I don't immediately notice this because my drawings are more complex than the sample drawing I've attached.

See images below.

However, when I manually resize the application window (either by restoring or maximizing, or by draging the window edge, the application window refreshes to show the proper generic gray-stripe background.

System specifications: AutoCAD 2014 64-bit SP1, Windows 7 64-bit SP1, Intel Core i7-2600K, AMD FirePro V4900
16GB RAM, Crucial M4 SSD, 3 Dell Monitors (2 30" 2560x1600 & 1 20" 1200x1600)

AutoCad :: BLOCKS And Very Slow Completion Of Commands?

Mar 22, 2013

I have found that my computer has slowed down when using autocad. I am thinking it is related to the blocks and possibly exploding them but when I delete and purge the programme still runs really slowly ie takes up to 5 seconds for a command to complete. Also when I try to copy and paste from one drawing to another it can take up to 15 mins or more.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publish Drawing To DWF In Black And White?

Feb 23, 2012

I have been using autocad for 20 years plus. I've never really had to publish anything to DWF. We have a client that wants DWF's instead of PDF's. I have a 3D model with views in paperspace within viewports. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to plot these drawings to DWF in Black and White. I have tried everything. I am using monochrome.ctb plot style. The border and all border elements are plotting B/W but everything in the viewport is plotting whatever color it is in the VP. This is driving me nuts. Never liked this DWF format. If I plot to a PDF it all comes in B/W.
