  1. Hello all, I have been working on printing to text-searchable PDFs, and ran into a little problem. When I regen a drawing and print to PDF, the output is not consistent - it changes just a little bit from plot to plot. This is unacceptable to the client, who is very picky about their drawing packages. Can anyone reproduce this problem? I attached a script and a drawing that shows what I mean. I put both in C:\test\, then opened the drawing and loaded the script. The result is 10 pdfs saved in that folder, each one a little bit different. The right most line is sometimes outside the print area, sometimes inside. It seems completely random. The only code that runs between plots is (command "undo" "mark" "-purge" "all" "*" "no" "-overkill" "all" "" "done" "-purge" "all" "*" "no" "regen" "undo" "back") But how on earth could that change the drawing?! Furthermore, why does it change the drawing in a way that's inconsistent? If it was shifting things around, that's one thing, but to sometimes change things and sometimes leave them alone? I feel like my computer is non-deterministic example.dwg print.lsp
  2. Hi, I have several drawings that each include (1) a layout containing a viewport showing drainage areas & an x-referenced survey and (2) a spreadsheet with drainage calculations. Recently a problem has developed such that the x-referenced survey is not plotting correctly on the layouts that contain the spreadsheet. At first I thought it was a fluke with one drawing, but then it started happening on all my drawings, even ones that had previously plotted fine. Here are the details: 1) The x-reference plots fine in all the layouts within the drawing except the one that contains the spreadsheet. 2) The spreadsheet is put into the drawing by selecting the cells in Excel, copying, going to paperspace in Autocad, and pasting the cells in. 3) I have two methods for creating pdfs in Civil 3D 2008. First method: go to the "Adobe PDF" menu and select the "Convert to Adobe PDF" option. This method plots everything fine except the xreference. Second method: Go to "File" -> "Plot" and use the plotter "DWG to PDF.pc3". This method plots the xreference, but the text in the titleblock and the spreadsheet is all garbled and fuzzy. Any suggestions? Is there some system variable or AutoCAD setting that would cause this?
  3. Hi, I am trying to convert a dwg to eps format for use with Adobe Illustrator. I've tried exporting as eps and using conversion software but the output is incomplete and of poor quality with both these options. Does anyone know how I can get a like for like output.? Thanks Al
  4. I am using AutoCAD 2004 and Adobe 9 Standard. Whenever I convert my dwgs into pdf files, some of my arrow heads extend beyond their reference lines. Looks fine in the dwg, but not in the pdf file. I'm also having problems with Adobe recognizing some of my shx fonts. Again, it will elongate the "points" of the text - like the tips of the "M"s and "N"s. I found that DWG Trueview will plot my text ok, but it also elongates my arrow heads. Any ideas on how to fix this?? Thanks in advance!
  5. We have Adobe Acrobat Pro which has a plugin to allow batch plotting of PDFs from multi-sheet drawings. Works awesome in Autocad 2009 and before. It DOES NOT work with Autocad 2011! (Waaaahhhh!!) Does any one know how to make it work or a suitable workaround? We have drawings with 70 sheets and it's nice to print the entire document to a single PDF in one step. Takes less than one minute in Acad09. Nice! Does PUBLISH do this? I saw another thread where Publish creates other issues. Help! Help! Help! Thx!
