I am using AC LT 2008.
I have a drawing that measures 34 x 19 and I must print it at a scale of 1:1.
In Plot - Model I use Printer Name - Dwg to PDF, Paper Size - Arch D 36 x 24,
What to Plot - Extents and Scale - 1:1.
I review this in Preview and it looks fine so I then complete the Plot
The PDF file is saved on my Desktop and when I open it it looks fine.
I then Upload the file to Staples Copy Service. Their paper size choice is 24 x 36.
When I preview it at Staples the drawing is cropped because of the orientation of the paper
They do not seem to have a paper size of 36 x 24 or any Rotate feature...
Now I go back to my drawing and rotate it 90 degrees.
In Plot I again use Printer Name DWG to PDF, I change the Paper Size to Arch D 24 x 36, Extents and 1:1.
When I preview this from the Plot screen the 'paper' the image is on has a landscape orientation and much of the image is cropped.
What am I misunderstanding or doing wrong here?
Thanks for your help.
As a bonus question What is the difference between a paper size of Arch D and Arch D Expand?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Arch D takes the Margin into consideration and Arch D Expand does not (at least that is what I believe).
Do not rotate your Drawing.
Set your paper to 24 x 36 and change the Orientation to Landscape (or Portrait).

That arrow down at the bottom of the dialog gets many a person.
Expanded view like this should probably be the default view of this dialog.
