How do I remove autodesk educational banner, I have had my autocad for many years and purchased a new computer and when I installed the autocad disk, every time it opens a file it states Educational plot stamp detected, do you wish to contiune. then every time you print it the banner is printed on all four sides of the drawing. How do I get rid of this. I have removed Autocad, deleted all the files, folders and words, I have rebooted, shut down and reinstalled and again it does the same thing. WHAT AM I MISSING.

its not clear what AutoCAD you are using.

are you using a registered commercial version of AutoCAD or and EDU version of AutoCAD?

if you are using a commercial version and you open the DWG files and it gives you the EDU warning it implies that someone has opened and saved that file with an EDU version of AutoCAD or copied / referenced data into those files from an EDU file.

open file with commercial version of AutoCAD
select all
dxfout
create new dwg file using your clean template file
open new dwg file
dxfin (dxf file created above)
save
problem fixed......

so you are now getting the banner on all files? even newly created files?

thats odd its almost as if your AutoCAD has suddenly become an educational version.
i presume you are registering it correctly?......but even if you do not register it correctly it usually just reverts to a 30 day trial license not an edu

i would contact your reseller if thats possible

Jim,

AFAIK it's the s/n, not the cd/dvd that determines whether your copy is edu
or commercial.
Your dealer should be able to look up your s/n via his partner portal.

1. EDU comes from content in your files.

2. If it was your copy of AutoCAD, your startup splash screen would say so,
as it also would if while in AutoCAD you click on Help>About AutoCAD.

So which is it? At lease confirm or dismiss #2 above.

I have the same problem with the banner of autodesk on 4 sides of the print out. I am using AutoCAD 2010, student version. How can I remove it because it looks like a mess when I turn my assignment in to the teacher.

Thank you in advance for the replies.

Trim the paper.

Honestly, any teacher would expect the EDU banner anyway and would not (and
should not) penalize you for it.

Unless it is your teacher's first day on the job, it's been around for a
very long time.

Frame or Trim your work for the presentation, any other time your educators
see it all the time.
