Plot Project trouble in 2013

I'm having trouble with the Plot Project command in project manager.  It worked the first time I used it but hasn't since.  It doesn't lock up - pressing the "esc" key will exit the command. If I type "plot" I can do drawings one at a time.  When I open the project manager and press the publish / plot button, the little flyout window opens and I can select Plot Project.  The flyout window closes and the printer icon greys out, but nothing happens.  There's no hidden window I can tab to and there's nothing displayed on the command line.  I've closed the program and restarted but it still does not work.  I just got a new Windows 7 - 64 bit machine and did a fresh install of AcadE 2013 last week Friday.  Any help would be great... Thanks

Hi Kyle


I think I understand your question.


When I used ACE2010  Publisher worked fine from the project.   I started on ACE2012 and had problems.


I find thet the publisher in the project area JUST DOES NOT WORK. 


I use the publisher using the BIG "A" pull down menue.   It works.   I have not bothered with the features that are available as it seems to be to a maze of options to muck things up.


This "PUBLISHER" has lost some of the features that were in the Project Publisher that were in ACE2010.


I hope this helps.

I suspect you are using dual monitor rite?

I came across another similar topic at this link:
