I am trying this package and am having problems with printers. The package only sees the system printers consequently I am unable to make plots larger than the paper sizes they support (Tabloid). The windows version I have used (2011 LT) had drivers for DWG to PDF, DWG to DWF etc. which allowed me to select large sheet sizes in the layouts. I know that I can print to PDf using the Mac system but the largest paper size is limited to the installed system printers limitations.
Macbook Pro running Lion.
Am I missing something ?
I also posted this on the Autocad LT forum.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In Edit page setup dialog (you can call it from Layout or Model) open Paper Size drop-down list, at the bottom of the list select "Manage custom sizes", click on "+" and select New or Select from list:
Edit the name of paper size (if you need), non-printable area, etc.
Click OK, your new paper will show in paper sizes list.
Thanks that will work.
I must admit I was hoping someone would just say go "here" for the missing printer drivers and have it all done for me, guess I need to open up my windows version and copy down all the sheet sizes and printable area settings.
I don't have a work around for the upside down pdf, but I am curious about your results with pdf.
Besides being upside down, is the quality good? Have you experienced any random cropping?
