Batch Plotting on AutoCAD 2018 MAC Problem

Recommended Posts

Ok so this is interesting and i can't figure it out. I've done multiple batch plots of a project with no issues. Then, I do my last plot today and its missing parts of the drawings. I have uploaded a portion of the title block showing the issue.

 

But its not just in the title block. its in the drawings too. Lines of a table missing, text in the architectural Xref room callouts, text from the legend, etc.

 

Anyone have a simple answer to this? I've tried multiple times to plot again with batch and its not fixing. But if i plot single pages its fine. Seems to only be in batch publish. Also, its not on every project. This is now the 2nd time in hundreds of projects i've had this happen.

 

I've also went over to AutoCAD 2017 for windows and it does the same thing. Im racking my brain trying to figure this out.

 

Any ideas to fix would be greatly appreciated.

I see that your client is KP. Since they are 'evil' maybe your computer has a demon that it can't shake.

 

My best guess would be a font embed problem with publish. Double check these settings and see what turns up.

of course they are evil, but they also pay on time and give us tons of business. So I can't complain :D

 

So i was able to uncheck 'Keep TrueType Fonts' and it published fine. Why would this now be a problem when before it wasn't? We didn't change fonts or anything. Literally just did some minor revisions to the drawing set and replotted.

Not a Flaming, simply trying to keep you employed.

 

So you've published your company name, and your clients name on a public forum and described the client as evil.

 

I suggest finding the delete option on the EDIT POST dialog ASAP.:facepalm:

Did you upgrade your computer when you upgraded the software? What Fonts seem to be a problem?

 

What OS and Computer Specifications (for both the MAC and the Windows you tried)?

 

Haven't used 2018 for batch plotting much, I'll try to have a look here for that problem, when I get some time.
