I have read many topics on this and have not found my answer.
We are using Acad 2008 with Carlson Survey, Adobe Acrobat 8.1.2.
When we go to 'Plot' and select the 'Adobe PDF' printer it prints a single layout correctly. I am having issues using the 'Convert to PDF' command from the adobe pulldown menu. We want to use this becasue we have multiple layouts to covert and want them all in a single pdf file.
When we use this option chunks of the layout are missing, some from model space, some from paper space. Nothing in paperspace that is an attribute gets converted over. One entity of mtext has 7 lines, after conversion the pdf only shows 2 lines of the text. It appears that the line/block entities in MS are all getting converted.
Lets just say that buying an add on program is not an option, so I don't need any suggestions with that. If we have a 20 layout dwg, right now we have to go into each layout and plot to the ''Adobe PDF' plotter and then open Acrobat 8 Pro and combine them. This is a waste of time...... I appreciate any help! Thanks, AJN
