What PDF print driver are you using then (if the Adobe.pc3 is missing)?
Do you have sparate "page setups" (in the Page Setup Manager) for each paper size you want?
Tried searches in CADTutor & internet & AutoCAD Help...
AutoCAD 2010 (vanilla)
Have DWGs with mulitple sheets: 2-NTS & 1-set to specific scales (each DWG may be different scale).
Need to Publish to PDF the sheet set for 8-1/2x11 & for 11x17, keeping the set scale.
When I attempt to publish, I can only get 11x17...
Also, I get a warning each time I Plot or Publish:
"Adobe PDF.pc3: This plotter configuration cannot be used for one of these reasons: the driver cannot be found, the device cannot be found, or the driver has a problem. The None plot device has been substituted."
Not sure if this latter warning has any affect on what I'm attempting, but I'm pretty sure I just don't know what the heck I'm doing...ultimately I need to learn how to correctly publish to two different paper sizes (to scale).
The "page setups" are named for the different page tabs. The setup is for 11x17, so I don't know how 8-1/2x11 PDFs were created initially (each DWG has 2-PDFs associated--11x17 & 8-1/2x11).
Regarding what PDF print driver I'm using....have.no.clue...I'm publishing/printing PDFs by selecting DWG to PDF.pc3.
New machine for me and programs were loaded by IT.
There is only one layout tab for the complete drawing (titleblock) and it is set up for 11x17. When I received the DWG, it came with two PDFs--one at 11x17 and one at 8-1/2x11.
If I understand you correctly, I think this is what you are wanting to do. There are 2 page setups in this dwg - one for 11x17 and one for half scale (8.5x11). Take notice of the page scaling in the setups.
Very helpful, Cary.
Thanks. My limited use of AutoCAD has limited my skills/knowledge as well. I don't typically set up scaled drawings and haven't done so for a lifetime...
