I have a set of 20 drawings I wish to publish as a DWF the drawing is in model space but the border is an attributed block placed in the layout tab.

For some reason the dwf publisher is chopping the very right hand side of the border, I have done a zoom extents on both layout and model space before saving the drawing and the viewport is locked in the correct position, any ideas as to why it would chop the border.

You probably need to look at the paper size the DWF printer is useing. Either customise the printer to make the non printable area smaller, or shrink your border a little.

what does the dotted line represent in the layout tab

That is your printable area. Keep the viewport inside it. Unlock it and slide the grips until it is inside the dotted line. ZOOM WAAAAAY IN. on the grips before moving them so you will be JUST inside the dashes.

That's ok when you don't need the scale to work out.

Glad you found a way.
