I have to two sheets layed out in one drawing in Auto CAD 2012, a tilte sheet and the building plan. How can I send that to one PDF file (one PDF file with both sheets) using the 'DWG to PDF.pc3' option?

Use  PUBLISH rather than individual plot and set the output to a multipage PDF

Would you call that, "Batch plotting to PDF"?

Hmmm possibly. If you Go FILE, the command PUBLISH should be about halfway down, or type _PUBLISH at the command prompt. Then the dialog opens select the tabs you want plot then hit the publish options buttion, in the General DWF/PDF options make sure multi-sheet file is selected.

Got it. I was over looking the layout tab for the multiple sheets. Thank you much!
