Plotting Viewport 2
sweetafton posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI have created a customised paper size in page setup (3000X900mm); the viewport is a clipped polygon which was chosen as I wished to create a small legend in the bottom corner. Although the drawing has only 1 viewport, when I attempt to plot, the console reads "plotting viewport 2" and nothing actually plots. The plotter is working fine for other drawings. Any ideas what might be wrong?
Custom Paper Size: Wizard problem
RobD posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI'm still running AutoCAD 2002. I have an HP Inkjet 7000 that is capable of printing borderless 13x19. I want to use it to print half-size sets - accurately scaled - of ARCH-D. i.e. borderless 12x18. I've named a plotter configuration "HP7000 Half-size" and I'm trying to use the Add-Plotter Wizard to set a custom paper size. The Wizard will not accept the fact that the printer is capable of borderless printing. When I type in 12 height, 18 width, the Wizard tells me that this exceeds the available print area. When I try to set the margins to 0 on all four sides the Wizard appears to accept that change, but when I plot the actual print area is still listed at 17.22 x 11.68, and the drawing is cropped, printed with margins, and printed out-of-scale. My work-around has been to print 24x36 pdfs and then print those onto a half-size configuration, which Adobe and my printer have no trouble with - except the scaling is not perfect. Any thoughts on a solution?
