All workstations the same DWG to PDF plot settings
Pietari posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputHi guys, This one has been giving me some headache. Could anyone of you point me into the right direction, I'd be most thankful. Software used: ZWCAD2014 on a Windows 10 machines. For those who may not know about ZWCAD: it is an actual and legal clone of AutoCAD 2012 official purchased at dealer store, the software is created by ZWSOFT. Just think of it as AutoCAD 2012, it makes understanding easier :-). In our company we have 8 workstation using the same ZWCAD program We only plot / publish from the layout tabs We all use DWG to PDF as it came with the software The created PDF's are send by email or they get plotted on our printer/plotter for internal use So far so good... but the problem is when I create an A3 (for example but it is the same on any paper size) it plots normal to a good looking PDF. If the same DWG is opened by one of my collegues, the plot gets cropped off, there are parts missing. I have attached the example output. I know fore sure some of us (me including) have tried to change the plottable area ages ago, reason for that was that the "default DWG to PDF" had way to big of a non printable area. To be in short: my DWG plots good on my workstation, and my collegues DWG plot okay on his workstation. But between all of the workstation it all gets messed up. We cannot plot each others drawings to PDF without having problems with the plottable area. I thought, let me check all the settings in the driver (see attachement) and I have put them all the same on another workstation. It did not change at all. At last I tried copying my PC5 file to the collegues.... still nothing changes. Now I can only think of a complete "re-install" of the software in order to get them working the same all the same once again. Before uninstalling and reinstalling the ZWCAD program and it's utilities, I'd thought maybe I'd ask here if someone could help me out. Thanks for the help!
