PDF Problems

114 Views, 1 Replies

When I print to PDF from AutoCAD Electrical 2011 instead of to an actual printer, the PDF file looks exactly like the dwg. However, when I combine the project PDFs and print them to a printer, the left side and bottom of the borders don't show. I can print from ACADE and everything looks good, so I don't think that my page setup is at fault.

I am thinking that the way ACADE converts to PDF may be my problem. I can print PDFs from others or even vendor PDFs and they print fine, only when I try to print PDFs from the ones that I have created does this problem show up.

Our IT folks are scratching their heads on this one.

If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations, it would be greatly appreciated.

this is not my area of expertise at all so I can't offer any specific advice. However, if this happens when using the plain AutoCAD Plot functionality, my suggestion to you is to look on the AutoCAD discussion board. There are a number of posts regarding getting PDF output.
