    I can not get my Publish to work when making PDF files.???
    I can make a PDF file from a single DWG file. (ACA 2008)
    But when I try and do a Publish job I get different results
    and do not get the entire set of drawings printed.???

    im sure you've got this covered but im going to ask anyways.

    are all of the sheets individually set up to plot to pdf?
    Failure is a dress rehearsal for success.

    I use Rasterex RxHighlight for batch printing & conversion. Much easier. As for PDF from Autocad I use two PDF printers. PDF995 and pdfFactory Pro. 3rd party is better.

    It's really easy, but with an extra step. Publish your drawing as a DWF, open the Design Review software, print and select your PDF driver and click OK (or Print, or whatever the hell else it's called). It should spit out one PDF with all pages included and properly rotated.
    Trying to explain the benefits of SolidWorks to a devout AutoCAD user is like trying to explain evolution to a creationist.
