CutePDF problem

Hi,

Does anybody know how i can solve the problem of not being able to print in metric (mm) scale when i try to convert a dwg. into a pdf.? WIth other plotters this is possible, but whenever i change the plotter to "CUTE PDF." (pdf. coverter), the plot to scale box immediately changes into inches and it cannot be changed to 'mm' no matter what size paper i use.

Interesting one...no problem for us - you have the latest mm toggle patch installed from the autocad support?
May also be because we do have adobe writer as well, and not just cuteprinter alone - maybe adobe is the reason we have no problem even if we do select the cutepdf printer.

I'ved used the Cutepdf alone.. it works fine.. i would check that you have the toggle plotting patch.. and create a PC3 for the printer driver. It works fine for me.
