  1. Has anyone seen or head of this error before, and does anyone have any suggestions on how to stop it happening. It does seem to be a random occurrence. When I plot to PDF the letters are coming in rotated about 90 degrees. No Idea why.
  2. I'm trying to plot one of my drawings to grayscale or monochrome style, but my lines and 3d polylines are colored with a color from a color book. When I try to plot, it will plot with the real color, even if I chose the Monochrome or Grayscale plot style. What can I do? (╥﹏╥)
  3. Hello, i am facing problem with plotting. I use Autocad 2015 on Mac. I have uninstalled Autocad and install it again. I have reseted all settings but keeps plotting Dashed lines and circles like that. I tried to save it as Pdf , i opened it on photoshop but it didn't work. Ty
  4. I've been trying to plot a drawing from the layout, I made a viewport and scaled it 1:25. however when I preview the print (I'm printing to pdf by the way) the lineweight is out of scale and I've checked the option "scale lineweight". Even if I uncheck it, the lineweight stays the same
  5. 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.
  6. Hey All, first time post here, I have an issue that drives me insane. When I print a layout with a PDF or an image in the viewport, the print job size inflates to some ridiculous size that is much larger than my referenced PDF/bmp/jpeg. For example, today I tried to print an 11x17 color layout with a google map aerial in the viewport. The referenced map, inserted as a jpeg using the xref manager, was approximately 500k in size. However, when I printed the layout, the print job inflated to 52MB, and would have taken almost 10 minutes to load at the printer. When I unload the image through the xref manager, the print job completes immediately, so I know its the image causing the issue. Does anybody have a solution, or have heard of this? Other Civil 3D users on my network do not have this inflation issue. This problem kills me when I have deadlines to meet and plans to print! Thanks everyone.
  7. Hi there, I want to plot 100+ drawings to PDF's and was wondering if there is a way to change the base file location it saves, to a location I can choose? I am currently using the PDF to DWG.pc3 file in a plotting script. Is there also a way to get rid of the PDF viewer when the script is running? Thanks

    Template size

    I am a student using AutoCAD 2010 to create drawings. Unfortunately, when I attempt to print, the template I was provided does not fit onto one page. I have reopened the template as a blank drawing and attempted to plot the template to determine if I had messed up the scale of the drawing. It is not the scale. The blank template at 1:1 still extends to a second page. Is there any way that I can continue to use this template without messing up the scaling of my drawing? Thank you very much for any suggestions.
