PDFMaker / Acrobat 2017 / Autocad 2019

Recommended Posts

I know at one point the PDFMaker went away.

It looks like it is back but I don't know how to get it into Autocad 2019.

 

We are having some issues printing to PDF without it.

(ie: Inconsistency between users with the same settings, etc.)

 

According to this page; PDFMaker-compatible applications 

PDFMaker is available for Autocad 2019 if you have Acrobat 2017 or Acrobat DC.

I loved this app years ago and was hoping to use it again.

 

I have Adobe Acrobat 2017 Pro and Autocad 2019.

I've done a repair of Acrobat but do not have an entry for PDFMaker in Autocad.

 

When I look in the Adobe folder under PDFMaker,

I only see entries for 2013-2015-2015.

 

Can someone tell me how to get PDFMaker into Autocad 2019?

 

Also, PDFMaker will create PDF files with searchable text when .shx files are used.

I have made sure that the PDFSHX/EPDFSHX variables are set to 1.

PDF files created via PUBLISH using PDF from Autocad 2019 are not searchable.

 

Help please!!

 

Thx

Sir,

 

I tried all those things, the repair and the -TOOLBAR command.

TOOLBAR asks for a toolbar name.

PDFMAKER, PDF, ADOBE, all "Not Found"

I don't know what the toolbar is called...

There is no ? like in some other commands..

 

I have done that and still no joy...

I have the pro version.

 

I have asked the same question on the Adobe site but no response yet..

 

 

 

I found this:

 

https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/creating-pdfs-pdfmaker-windows.html

 

Scroll halfway down to find Autocad

 

Creating the PDF from inside Acrobat works (have been trying to create searchable PDF files)

but I can't see how to make the PDF monochrome.

Just reinstalled Adobe Acrobat Pro.

Still not working.

 

If I look here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 2017\PDFMaker\AutoCAD

 

I only have folders for 2013/204/2015 and they will not load in ACAD 2019.

 

Documentation says you can create searchable PDFs using .shx files but I've tried and tried with no luck.

I have made sure that the PDFSHX/EPDFSHX variables are set to 1.

Set to 0 and back and forth.

PDF files created from Autocad 2019 are not searchable using .shx files.

If I use TTF (ie: Arial) completely searchable.

 

We are required by contract to use ROMANS.

 

Can Autocad use the romans.ttf loaded in the \Windows directory?

Could some explain "how" if so?

 

Please help!

 

ps: Just want to reiterate, We are not allowed to use ARIAL
