In the last year I bought a new computer for our office and was forced to upgrade to AutoCAD 2004 because our version of 2000 wouldn't run on the new computer. When I try to plot in Adobe Acrobat X Standard it only gives me sheet sized up to 11x17. When I was running AutoCAD 2000 on our XP machine it gave me all the architectural and engineering sizes. Anyone have an idea why it dropped the few dozen sizes I actually use?
Solved! Go to Solution.
AutoCAD does not control what an external third party driver offers for page sizes, if you use that system driver.
By chance did you create a limited use PC3 file in AutoCAD?
You had Acrobat X on the old computer too? And it was the 'STANDARD" version? Unless things changed at Adobe, the 'standard' version of full Acrobat only ever offered the smaller sheets and never the biger ones.
You'll find many of the freeware PDF drivers offer no such limitations.
Thanks, I figured that out this morning on Adobe's site. We had Adobe 6-pro and we changed to Adobe X - standard when we got the new computer. I created a PC3 file with the Custom Postscript page and got it to work. Thanks for the help.
