  1. Hello all. I need a lisp that will merge all layouts, that start with a certain name, into one PDF file. I have already made some progress with this Lisp. With the dwgprops I get information about the current file path, which I then merge all with the stract command. This also works, only the command "-Export" "ak" can only print one sheet. The number of layouts that start with "Plan..." are always different. Does anyone have an idea which command works instead for publish all Layouts, that beginns with the same name? The -publish command always asks me
  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")
  3. Hi there, I'm trying to convert a few thousand files from dwg to pdf and I believe I'm on the right track but am a little stuck. I'm attempting to use DWG TrueView though I have limited access to AutoCAD for like template creation and such. I seem to have trouble getting some of them to plot/publish and also it seems many of the layouts don't show the entire actual view (like I see 1/4 corner taking up the entire page) - scaling problems. My procedure is to create model and sheet page setup files in AutoCAD to use the built in DWG to PDF printer and 8.5" x 11" landscape. So I ope
  4. Hello, I have moved to a new office with a new computer, and I am trying to set up ACAD to where it PUBLISHes all the sheets to a single PDF, with PUBLISH quality (not plot quality). I have ten (10) layouts in a drawing, and all the layouts are set up the same way in Page Setup mgr. In page setup manager, for each one of the layouts, I've selected the BlueBeam PDF printer/plotter, an ARCH_E1 _(30.00_x_42.00_Inches) Paper size, a 'Plot style table' set to monochrome.ctb (SHOULD IT BE .stb???) with 'display plot styles' checked. Actually, just see this: Here are the problems:
  5. 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. (defun c:pdfpub (/ ob ss bn mn mx) ;; This was created by combining a multitude of different lisp routines by Lee Mac, RLX, Lee Ambrosius, Stephan BMR and howiez69 (vl-load-com) (setq doc (vla-get-ActiveDocument (v
  6. AutoCAD 2016 Right now we pdf (and it looks great), then we saveas a TIFF file. PDF lineweights look good, and so do the new TIFF lineweights. We are trying to publish straight to a TIFF file, but are lineweights are to fine. I've tried going into the imported "page setup" file and changing the lineweight in the page setup manager's "plot style table", but that did nothing. Any suggestions?
  7. Hey guys, I am having an issue I've never seen before. I am trying to publish a set of drawings into one PDF file with DWG to PDF. However, when I do it looks like this (blackout added): When I zoom extents the drawing, it shows there's nothing out there. The page size is 11X17 and it plots to that size. When I plot the drawings individually it looks like this: I am really stumped on what it could be and welcome any insights.
  8. I don't know if anyone else has this issue but since my support and Autodesk couldn't figure it out maybe it can be figured out here. When I am drafting I have multiple drawings open, I tend to copy and paste between drawings. This has caused an issue when I am publishing a finished drawing. When I have multiple drawings open and I try to publish, all of the drawings are listed as unsaved drawing. (unsaved drawing1, unsaved drawing2, etc.) I have to close the dialog box and save the drawing that I want to publish, and if I don't do anything between saving and opening the publish command the
  9. hello i'm priting my drafts with PUBLISH to a PDF file i'would like to change the name of the PDF : the name would start by the name of the tab and finish by the name of the file How can i lmake this possible? Phil PS : sorry, i need to increase my Acad vocabulary in english which is quite poor yet (i'm working on a French version)
  10. HI, I HAVE A SIMPLE SCRIPT FILE THAT PRINTS SPECIFIC TABS INSIDE A CAD FILE, IS IT POSSIBLE TO CHANGE THIS TO MAKE IT PLOT MULTIPLE TABS "LAYOUTS" IN THE SAME FILE, BASICALLY WILL BECOME EQUIVALENT TO A PUBLISH "BATCH PLOT" COMMAND. -PLOT Y PV2.00 DWG TO PDF.PC3 ARCH full bleed E1 (30.00 x 42.00 Inches) I L N L F Y SoCore_2014.ctb Y Y Y N N Y Y THNX
  11. My company just switched over to AutoCAD 2014 and for some reason the PUBLISH command is not working, or following through with the printing once we complete the required steps to plot. We are able to select the drawings to be plotted (8"x11" sheets), then successfully bring in our page setup that we created with one of the drawings to be plotted (which we use the same template with the same limits on ALL of our 'drawing templates' we design with. After we hit the PUBLISH button at the bottom it goes into the background and just stays there with no errors or anything After a little whi
  12. Hi All, I have a functioning Spooling lisp routine that allows me to process a series of drawings from a list in a text file. At the moment I can run routines, print and generate single sheet DWF files. My company now has the requirement to generate Multi-Sheet DWF files that include the Model and all Layouts. I am creating the DSD files for each drawing that opens with the spool process and then run -PUBLISH command using the created DSD file. When I step the script through one line at a time it all works perfectly, but when I run the spool un-interupted, AutoCAD crashes with a
  13. Hi, I seem to be having an issue publishing multiple layouts into a single PDF. All the layouts are setup to plot to 'Adobe PDF' and in the Publish options I have set 'Publish to: Plotter named in page setup' as well as 'Multi-sheet file'. When I click OK I'm prompted for the filename for each layout and have to save them as separate files. The only time it does work is when I choose 'Publish to: PDF' which I guess uses AutoCAD's internal 'DWG to PDF' method. Is my preferred method an Adobe issue or is it fixable through AutoCAD?
  14. Ok I can not seem to find anyone else having this issue anywhere on the net. I am currently setting up a sheet set within one file where the main layout out is an xref with desired information drawn over the xref. I will need to setup a total of 30 some sheets(tabs) with 3 viewports on each sheet(tab) Here is the main issue. I go to plot an individual sheet(tab) and everything comes out fine. The xref is set to color Gray( #8 ) with a screen of 60% and my overlay drawings shows up as the desired darker lines. However when I got to do a batch plot (publish/using same plot settings as a
  15. Hi all I have this reoccurring issue with ACAD. It appears randomly and whenever we upgrade to newer versions of ACAD also. Now that we are upgrading to 2012 it has reared its ugly head again. Heres the issue; when I go to publish a set of drawings from sheet set manager it refuses to do so. It does not even show my page setups. So to get around this i will plot the drawings individually or create a DWF and plot them that way. Another way is to delete all the sheets within the sheet set and add them all again which fixes it, but its time consuming and quiet annoying having to do this all t

    Is there a way to load the P.S. layout sheets only, and not model space? At present, I just load the needed files and then select/delete the M.S. layouts.
