I have been trying to plot an excel spreadsheet within LT2009. See attached files.
Test Adobe.pdf was created using "Adobe PDF" driver, paper size A3. Looks good except for the exta lines running through columns 1 and 9.
Test Dwg to.pdf was created using "dwg to PDF.pc3" driver, paper size ISO A3 (420x297mm). The excel portion looks good but it has cut off the border all around.
Border size is 410mm x 287mm.
Using Acrobat 9 Pro and MS Office 2010.
I don't understand what's happening and would appreciate if anyone could help.
The built-in PDF driver has wider margins all around: you know how to fix that in Excel I believe.
May I ask why you are printing ONLY the Excel sheet from AutoCAD, and not Excel? If you only need the Excel spreadsheet in PDF, print it from Excel.
I am plotting from AutoCad so I'm not sure how fixing something in excel would solve the problem of the Dwg to PDF driver from truncatiing the border. Maybe I'm not understanding your point.
I am not printing ONLY the excel sheet in my working drawings- I made this drawing for simplicity.
I have attached the (stripped down).dwg file, if that's any help.
Back to my original point then, the built-in PDF driver has wider margins, most likely why your print-out is cut off. Set your layout to the built-in PDF driver and see it roll off the page in your layout (your posted sample does that here).
If you want to use it, your border needs to be reduced in size.
Well it's unfortunate that dwg to pdf driver can't plot a true A3 size, I have to use the Adobe driver to get the true size.
I guess I now need to go to Adobe and find out why the lines are showing up on the spreadsheet.
Thanks for your time.
