  1. Hi, I'm having a problem making .plt files, and its a new issue within the last couple weeks. Previously, I could make .plt files with no problem. Now, I run through all the old routine steps, but when it makes the actual file it comes up as 0 bytes. I can do this task anywhere between 1 and 59,000 times before it makes a useable .plt file, meaning it is working correctly at completely random times. I work on large scale civil development projects and .plt files are the easiest way for me to print our large sets of drawings instead of PDF or DWF (PDF files are large in size and for some reason DWF has a random problem capturing fonts). I am working in generic ACAD2012 or 2013, and use an Oce PW300 to print my .plt files. I can print to the Oce just fine, and can print older .plt files (using SPLOT Plotter simulator) just fine also. I can also print the new .plt files I create, it just takes a million tries before it actually creates a useable .plt file. Really, this is incredibly frustrating as I'm a solo designer working on many projects and don't have the time to "attempt" to make .plt files a million times before one takes. Has anyone else run into this issue? Is there a fix? Any help would be appreciated.
  2. I'm a beginner using AutoCAD 2014. I am still confused when it comes to My units and plotting to scale. If I want my drawing at 1/8" scale what would I set my units to and what would I set my scale to when plotting? Any information at all would be helpful.
  3. Hello, our office is having an issue with certain drawings when we create a plot file to be printed by an outside printing company. Other drawings which are set up to plot in the exact same way do not seem to have this problem. The issue is that everything within the viewport plots as shown in the print preview, however; some of the paperspace elements on our title block do not print. OLE objects, additional viewports for legends, and brackets that are in paperspace are not printing. I appreciate any help you can give me with this issue.
