Plotting to PDF problem


Recommended Posts



When I plot my drawing to Adobe PDF the orientation of the drawing rotates 90 degrees relative to the paper orientation. Even though it all looks fine in print preview.


Does someone know how to fix this?


I am using Autocad 2007 and Adobe proffesional 7.0


Thanks :(

Check the orientation of the paper not only on the print set up, but also your settings in the PDF WRITER. if its landscape in the print setup, your PDF WRITER must also have a paper orientation of Landscape

What printer driver are you using? If you have a print driver from Adobe and if that is the one your using you need to go into the custom properties to make sure its printing to the correct orientation.


If you are using the driver supplied by AutoCAD DWG to PDF.pc3 you need to select the correct ANSI paper size and orientation. The sheet orientation in the printer/plotter section should match the orientation you want.


Hope this helps.

its very easy dont get dispoint. just open autocad and follow the given procedure



1------- click on file and select PAGE SETUP MANAGER

2------- set all setting according to ur requirements and close it

so every time when u will plot any file into PDF autocad will select the previous setting which u set before. take care :wink:
