    Default Problem printing PDF version of CAD 2011 problem

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi All,


    Usually when I print the PDF version of a cad plan it attaches itself to an email. I highlight the area I want to print, select PDF creator, preview and then click OK. Usually at the point I get a box appear with the attached doc and I save as. For some reason it is not working now. Is it a printer issue? have the settings been changed and if so can anyone advise how to reset it?.


    Many thanks


    Franny

    This doesn't sound like anything AutoCAD related, what is PDF Creator? Is that part of Adobe Acrobat or some Add-On for your printer?

    Some details on your printer may help.

    Looked at the PDF Creator features and looks like it can be configured at the "Action feature"
