AutoCAD 2010 :: Preventing PDF Viewer To Open Drawing File When Plotting To PDF File?

Mar 9, 2012

As an engineering company we have started to convert hundreds of our drawings from AutoCAD to PDF using a batch utility.

However every file that is converted into a PDF file is opened by a PDF Viewer. We want to prevent this.

I opened my *.pc3 file and removed the check from the appropriate box. See below

I press OK, then save the file and close. However when I reopen the file, I see the box for Openining in PDF Viewer has been rechecked. No matter what I do, I cannot permanently remove the check from this box.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Plotting A Long Drawing File

Mar 2, 2012

 I am on a 64 bit Windows 7 HP computer with AutoCAD 2010, and I am having a problem plotting a long  (24" X 190") drawing file. We have a RICOH Aficio MP W3600 PS plotter. I have gone through the proper procedure through the Plotter Manager all the way to Select Custom Paper Sizes but the Add button is grayed out and I can't add a new user size. I was able to do this with AutoCAD 2004 on a Windows XP system but can't on this setup.

Jun 10, 2012

When I have 2 files open, one minimized and the other visible on the screen, when I quit the file showing on the screen and then open the one that was minimized, it comes up w/a blank black screen. There is no way I have found to get the info in the file to display.

Then, if I save the blank screenof previously minimized file, close it then reopen it the info is back on screen with changes made to the file intact.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Plotting Layout To JPG Creates Empty File?

Mar 5, 2012

When in Paperspace and using the Plot icon and choose Printer Name "PublishToWebJPG.pc3" I get a JPG created that is size 32 bytes, but is empty.

I need to create JPGs of drawings for a document. I have attached an example DWG and a resulting JPG.

BTW: I did try using SAVEIMG - as JPG, TIF, PNG - it does create an image with the title block, but not the model content.

Aug 4, 2013

I have imported an OAM file into the first page of an app I am making in InDesign. The OAM looks correct on load but once the animation begins it gets really big and all I see is a tiny portion of the animation.

AutoCAD .NET :: Open A Drawing File Programmatically?

Apr 9, 2012

I am trying to open a drawing file programmatically(automatically).

So for example.

If I have a file name "test.dwg" and run some custom command like 'openfile", AutoCAD opens "test.dwg" without any prompt.

The following code DOESN'T do the job I want.

Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.SendStringToExecute("OPEN", true, false, true)

The problem is I have to hit enter after the above code is run.

AutoCAD 2010 :: DWG File Will Not Open In IE 8

Oct 24, 2013

quick back ground - Windows 7 64 Bit - Autocad 2010 installed - IE 8 32 / 64bit - Lotus Notes 8.5

Our DWG files are stored in a shared folder, and we use a Lotus Notes DataBase to browse for drawings as you can put information with the DB Entry.

When you click Open drawing IE 8 pops up but the window is blank. PDF's open fine in IE 8.

why the dwg drawings are blank?

d) using recover to recover and fix the file

e) using recover to open the backup file

AutoCAD 2010 :: Drawing File Is Not Valid?

Jun 28, 2012

I don't know what happened, but my autocad file doesn't open up with a message "drawing file is not valid". I opened it at home once in Autocad 2012 - Student version and I open it at school usually every other day in Autocad 2012 - Educational version and it opens up properly at both places. But this tuesday I tried to open it, and it didn't open. I really need this file to be recovered because this drawing was complicated and I finished it. So, it will be a real pain to do it all over again plus the time I will waste. I am going to attach that file here.

AutoCAD 2010 :: How To Print Drawing In PDF File

Feb 19, 2012

Why plotting the drawing in pdf file produces a NOT to scale drawing?

I’m wondering if there is a way to print the drawing in a pdf file such that the drawing scale is kept correct.

For example, I tried to print the drawing shown in the screenshot in 1/100 scale using the Adobe pdf printer, but later, as I printed the pdf file, the printed drawing is not to scale!

Why the pdf file doesn’t keep the scale?

Is there a way to “preserve” the scale while printing the drawing in a pdf file?

AutoCAD LT :: Full File Path Name For Open Drawing Windows

Apr 1, 2013

When I choose Open Drawing and the window pops up, it would be nice if the full path name of the file showed up on the bar where it shows the file name (see attachment). As it is I can't tell if this file is on my c drive or my back-up drive.

The individual drawings show the full path name once they're open, can the same be achieved with the Open Drawing window?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Freezes When Trying To Open New File Or Save As?

Oct 2, 2012

we have a new lab in our district with Autocad 2010 64-bit version installed on HP Compaq 8022 Elite SFF computers.  There is 4 GB memory on the computers and a Quadro 400 graphics card.  Autocad and Windows 7 64-bit have both been updated to the latest versions.  The Autocad application locks up almost every time someone chooses the new document icon, or when they try to 'save as'.  Sometimes when they choose to open a new document first, close that dialogue box, then try to choose the new document icon it works ok.  But, for the most part, the application is unuesable. Some possible solutions we found online that don't work are to not use the Aero themes (we don't) and to not use Norton AV (we don't).

AutoCAD 2010 :: Freezing During File Open Process

Sep 6, 2011

I am having issues with my computer completely freezing while performing a File, Open process. I'm in drawing 1, I save it, then go to open drawing 2. Drawing 1 will save, the open file window pops up. With me so far? While navigating through the file directory tree, my computer freezes. I do not chose a file that freezes during opening. It is during the process of getting to the folder drawing 2 resides in, and then it freezes. This happens to me multiple times a day. Ctrl +Alt+Delete will not work. I have tried letting my computer sit, as you would with a program not responding, and it doesn't unfreeze. The only option I am left with is a hard reboot. The only other program I have running is my MS Outlook.

I have been back and forth with our IT person, and because he can't replicate the problem (after trying one file open), he can't figure it out, or doesn't want to.

I am running AutoCad 2012 with a Dell Precision T3500, 2.13ghz, intell xenon E5506 processor, and 4gb of RAM. After looking at the system requirements, and reading that 2012 needs a 3.0 or higher processor, could this be the route of my issue?
