  1. Hi all, I have written a lisp that uses the vl-file-copy command to move this PDF to another folder. But this only works for the original pdf, not for the link! Does anyone know if I need to change something in the command to be able to move the link? The file name remains the same: "sheet_cover_building1".
  2. Hi Guys, I have several layouts when drawing, which also have different names. I want to save in a Lisp all layouts that start with a specific name in a certain folder as PDF. I am new in lisp, but i have managed to write a lisp that selects the correct location for me. Unfortunately only all layouts are printed. (defun c:Dokument_Export () (command "-EXPORT" "PDF" "ALLE" (strcat (substr (getvar "DWGPREFIX") 1 70) "\\08_Auftragsbestätigung\\" (strcat (substr (getvar "DWGNAME")

    Sheet sets and alignments

    This is more of a solution than a problem, in case it happens to someone else. tl;dr: When you publish a sheet set, you may get an unexpected alignment in your output. I have a drawing created with LDD. I wanted to add a sewer profile, so I created an alignment. The alignment object was on layer 0 (not my choice), so I hid the object. It didn't show up in print preview. It didn't show up when I printed that one sheet to PDF. When I printed the whole set to PDF, though, the alignment appeared on the plans. I have no idea why the "Dwg to PDF" plotter prints an alignment t

    Hello, I am new in AutoCAD. I draw 1:1 floor plan, I draw 1m in real like 1 in autocad. Now I have to plot it in pdf as 1:50. How can I do that
  5. will there ever be a day where inserting a pdf underlay into autocad doesn't slow it down or am I doing something wrong? I would rather not degrade the quality and make it a jpg
  6. I have had this issue for a long time and not been able to figure out what causes it. On a variety of drawings I have a number of Paperspace layout tabs. Each layout tab has the drawing number in the title block in paperspace in the bottom right corner. On some tabs, when I print them to PDF, the bottom half of the drawing number is cropped or blanked off, however the rest of the title block lines around and below it print fine. On other tabs it all prints OK. The properties of the text appear to be the same and the size of the text frame appears the same
  7. Hi all, my lisp knowledge is very limited so I was hoping someone could help mw with this. I have a lisp which I copied from a Autodesk forum (https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/visual-lisp-autolisp-and-general/export-to-pdf-lisp-routine/td-p/5704455) and tweaked a little to suit my needs. It basically plot all layout tabs to PDF (with revision letter at the end of the pdf name). It works just fine. Now, what I want it to do is to instead of printing all layouts, read a csv file "title_block.csv" and only plot to PDF layouts named in that csv file (column B) starting from cell B2. It would
  8. This code used to work fine for plotting to a .pdf: (defun c:SendToPDFefa() (vl-load-com) (if (setq filename (getfiled "Save File Location" "" "pdf" 1)) (progn (command "-plot" "yes" "" "DWG To PDF.pc3" "ANSI expand B (11.00 x 17.00 Inches)" "inches" "landscape" "yes" "Extents" "fit" "center" "yes" "acad.ctb" "yes" "a" filename "no" "yes") ) ) ) Now it fails with this output: Command: SENDTOPDFEFA Unknown command "P:\randomfolderstructure\ACADFILENAME.PDF".

  9. Hi All. I was wondering if anyone knows of a tool or a way to basically, batch PDF multiple viewports or specific coordinates within a paper layout. I have an A0 drawing where i need a print of the A0 drawing, and multiple grids set to A4 then a Jpeg showing the full plan with the grids on. I have set up a script using the -plot command and set the Coordinates for each grid. However it is a bit slow and cumbersome to do this on multiple drawings. Does anyone know of a way to maybe either through a script or a lisp, to open a drawing. Find certain instances of a block or polyline and print
  10. All, With the help of other lisp routines We have come up with a way to use Publish to make a multi page PDF without using a 3rd party program. Here it is for everyone to look at and use. It works and does what we want it to do but we haven't figured out how to delete the DWG files when it's done Publishing, so if some one could figure that out that would be great.

  11. Hi thanks for looking, I have a problem with pdf'ing, my text comes out in random shades both when exporting and plotting to pdf. when viewed in adobe acrobat it displays as below weirdly when viewed in a nuance reader it displays fine. the pdf also prints to hardcopy fine, but clients mostly look at pdf's in adobe. any ideas??

  13. I have a client who used Simplex.shx font all over their drawing package. Is there a way to use Simplex.ttf in a text style instead? I have read and searched all over and haven't gotten anything to work. When I go to my style manager Simplex_IV25 and SimplexIV_IV50 are the only true type fonts I can use of Simplex. They are wider and bolder than the regular version, which is not selectable. I would like to change the style using a script on my 300+ drawings so that when we convert to PDF it is searchable. I cannot use either Simplex_IV25 or Simplex_IV50 because the clients would notice and wou
  14. I inserted a pdf file (table) and printed it out. Now that I want to open the file again, the table is gone and its address is shown instead. What is wrong and how can I keep the table as the first time?
  15. Hey everyone, I am new to this whole forum thing, so I apologize if I should be starting a new thread but I do have a question related to this that I was hoping you could help with. I have been trying to automate my plotting process using MColor 9 which is a extension to CAD for color renderings. The issue is I am trying to plot multiple tabs at once, or back to back automatically. The command for plotting with Mcolor is "MCO_PLOT", but it will only do one tab at a time. I have created a LISP that has gotten me really close to where I want to be, which is: (defun C:mco-plot
  16. All, I need some help with this PDF plot lisp that was created at work, this lisp was created to take material list sheets PDF them and drop them into the source folder with the sheet name as the file name.

  17. I have been working to correct issues we did not realize we had with PDF output from AutoCAD DWG and Inventor IDW files. I have seen several posts related to the same thing so I wanted to share what I have discovered and the fix for it to date. If you are finding that your DWG files or IDW files when output to PDF from just about any method are not FULLY searchable your not alone! ROOT CAUSE 1.) Any Text Style using a SHX font will not convert to searchable text. Instead it is output as an image. WHY - SHX fonts are unique to AutoDesk products and were developed for the pen plot
  18. Hello All, I'm out-of-work and searching. Whilst going through the process, my wife has started a new business. I have become the DeFacto CAD Toad.

We really have had few issues, for free.

  19. Hello, A question about plotting to PDF and paper printable areas that I wonder if anyone can help with. I have a LISP routine that plots a PDF to the file where the original drawing is saved. This mostly works great for me. Our drawing standards are to use the default standard paper sizes printable area for a paper plot (so an A3 sheet might have 6mm left, 5m right, 18mm top and 17mm bottom margin to the plot), but for a PDF plot to use a modified standard paper size with a 0mm margin all round the printable area (so it plots full size). My LISP routine detects the curre
  20. hello I'm quite new to autocad but I'm slowly learning, anyway I know enough to make a floorplan and etc. The problem is when I plot it to pdf, I know you have to set up the viewport and page set up manager and all the basic stuff. I've done all of that already but when I plot it to pdf at actual size it's always off by like .5 cm ( I use a 1:100 scale) I measure on screen with a triangular scale. I've always had this problem and I thought that it was either my pdf viewer (at 1st I was using mozilla's) so I switched to nitro reader, but nothing was happening it was still not accurate. (al
  21. I am using AutoCAD 2015. I use solid hatch to fill in my logo. However, it shows very furry lines around the logo when I export it to pdf file. When I print the file, the logo looks fine. Just when I review it in pdf on computer, it looks really bad. I need to send the drawings to clients in digital file. So anyone can help me solve this problem? Thanks a lot!!! I checked every place on Internet to solve this problem but without any luck. I will be waiting for answers. Please see below attachment to see the bad effect of the logos in pdf.

  24. I'm fairly new to cad, been using it for less than a year but have never had this problem before: when i export a dwg file to pdf not all the lines appear... it is not a layer issue as some of the missing lines are in the same layer as those that are showing up. if you zoom in to the pdf they will appear but i have quality issues when plotting. i don't think it's the drawing because if i use autocad on the windows side of my mac it is fine although appears to be exporting faintly - blacks are more grey in colour. so i am assuming it's some sort of bug on autocad for mac? i had 2014, deleted it
  25. When I use plot to pdf, I look at the pdf and everything looks fine, however when I plot said pdf file I get text that is "in jail" the only thing that is different between the different text file is using wipeout or mask, will show the bars. I've tried to upload a pic, but its not letting me.
