ADR 2013 import dwg wrong page size

Recently tried Design Review 2013 and I cannot get the page sizes to work. the same file is loaded in TrueView 2013 and the file looks great, but when I load in design review, only a portion of the file is visible. There appears to be nothing I can do about this.  Please have a look at the pictures:

True View 2013 drawing view. seems OK


and the design review version of the file is here:

Design Review version not working


So you can see the letter size paper makes no sense. it is a D-size paper in true view. Model space is not much better.


Can someone help guide me to a solution?

TRUEVIEW is a DWG viewer.

ADR uses whatever plot parameters it finds in the layout your DWG file opens, generated a DWF, then displays it. It does not open and view a DWG file natively.


Please elaborate as ADR is not a good DWG file viewer if the DWG file is not actively set to behave as you wish it from AutoCAD.

Alright. So one has to apply the correct plot parameters within True-View and then export to DWFx. This seems to work now. Thanks!  Basically I think it was a problem with the DWG file not applying any plot parameters to the layout or model space elements. Thanks for the hint and solution. I now can mark up the page with an applied plot parameter.
