Has anyone had this problem ? 


I am going to print a very large document (47 pages). I have the page setups set to print to a pdf writer. We use the cute pdf writer program. Never had any probelms with it before. If I print to the pdf writer one sheet at a time. Works great. If I publish, all of the layers turn on in each sheet in the pdf.

Hi Troy,


Not sure about cure PDF, but I find that DWG to PDF.pc3 (installed by default) works OK for me. Few things I do remember, thought, is that PUBLISHCOLLATE system variable controls the plottings of individual sheets or multiple sheets. But most likely, the issue you have is taht your memeory cannot handle all sheets. I would suggest trying to plot in smaller groups.
