I'm having a problem plotting to pdf (using ScanSoft Pdf Pro 4) causing Autocad Civil 3d: Infrastructure Design Suite.
When I plot in Civil 3d 2009 I have no problems but we recently switched to Autocad Civil 3d: Infrastructure Design Suite and when I try to plot a pdf 24x36 it looks correct in the plot preview but my final pdf size comes out 36x36. I have tried everything I know...
Create a new sheet size
No luck on figuring out what the problem is. I can't just save as an earlier version and plot in C3d 2009 because my alignments gets screwy.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Do you have the same issue is you plot using DWG to PDF.pc3?
Can you post your drawing? I would like to try it.
I opened your drawing and and it shows a box with sides 22x36 when I measured it, but the page shows 8.5x11. In PAGESETUP I was able to set the Paper size ARCH expand D (24.00 x 36.00 Inches) and use DWG to PDF.pc3. It all came out nice. Please open this drawing and review the settings to see if you can mimic it on your machine.
That worked, Thanks. But I usally use ScanSoft PDF Create to make my pdf's. Works fine in C3d 2009. How would I go about creating a 22x36 paper to use DWG to PDF.pc3? That's the sheet size we use in Hawai`i.
Then you woudl have to select your plotter first ij Plot dialog, then go to Properties and in Device and Document Settinsg add Custom Paper Sizes.

BTW, you may first try adding it with your ScanSoft, just in case. Options may be different, though.
