I am new user in AutoCAD 2011.
Please help me if you know how to do this. Thanks!
The situation is:
How can I output to PDF when one Layout with many drawing?
I know how to output to PDF when one Layout with just one drawing(use Page setup + Publish),
any many Layout one of them just with one drawing.
Sorry for my poor English, if do not sure my meaning,
I can explain more.
the attachment will show you the 2 situations
1) one Layout with many drawing
2) one Layout with one drawing
One option is to split up the "one paper many drawing.dwg" by copying the layout tab 10 times & splitting it up into 10 individual Layout Tabs. This will allow for multiple plots using SSM or publish.
Another option is to split them up into separtate dwg files.
There may be other possibilities, but if it were me, I would do one of the above.
Thank you for your reply.
I know your meaning.
For me, I aslo like to drawing with individual.
But there have some old CAD, who drawing with many works in one Layout,
around 70 works in one Layout, as I know why they do this,
sometime its more comfortable.
So have any other ways I can do?
A company my company bought did this type of set-up for years with their standard details. The template had them in the "clean" drawing, so based on what details you needed they were available. Problem was you then had to plot to .pdf using a window on each drawing. No publish or Sheet set could be done easily. Using a window in the Page Set Up Manager is another way to deal with these types of drawings. Sorry there is no other quick solution than mine and what has been suggested.
I see. Thanks Steve.
So next time when I am drawing, I need to drawing with independent layout.
In fact, some project there have around 70-90 Elevation, is that all of you

such as, including First floor layout and Sceond Floor , Third Floor....
