I have AutoCAD for Mac 2014 installed on my MacBook with a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5, and 4 GB ram. It worked great up until Friday, when I upgraded from 10.9 to 10.9.1. I then ran into the startup issue discussed elsewhere on the forum.
I uninstalled and reinstalled 2014 with "Remember AutoCAD Preferences" turned off, which solved that problem.
I was able to print this morning after two tries, but can no longer plot from AutoCAD. I cannot plot to my Designjet 500 nor to PDF. Both give me no error message, but simply don't do anything.
The scroll wheel has been semi-responsive for the past day or so, but it seems that the Beta release of Autocad 2014 SP1 did the trick for that. Unfortunately, it has not fixed the printing issue.
Anyone else been having these problems?
Solved! Go to Solution.
All other applications are printing fine- I can print a PDF. I thought I'd do a quick fix and print as PDF then print the PDF, but cannot create a PDF either. It acts like it is about to do so, then does nothing. Drivers are up to date and working in other applications.
The scroll wheel issue began by not working at all, with several different mice. Checked settings in AutoCAD and in MagicPREFs to make sure they were on...The issue went away with a fresh install of AutoCAD, but occasionally still scrolls slowly then catches up.
The only change made before these issues started happening was upgrading from 10.9 to 10.9.1. I was able to plot once after upgrading to 10.9.1, but cannot do so again.
I also have this issue after upgrading to Mavericks from Mountain Lion, and here is the trick, that allows to "Open PDF in Preview" and, probably print to physical device (have not tried this):
If you are using Custom paper size for Page setup and when you open Print dialog, you may notice that Paper Size called "Custom", instead of the name you gave it in Page setup (A1+210 in my case):
If you will open Paper Size list and select your real Custom paper size name - everything should work fine.
