How do I create a 24x18 sheet in paper space for "dwf's" enabling me to use the "publish" command?

Great: so, do you have an custom 24x18 paperspace Layout already created in your DWG file(s) ready to be published?

Or do you have an 24x18 paperspace Layout already defined in your master Template file?

 

Either can be set up for any plotter you have, even DWF plotter provided in R2006.

Dean, I' pulled down the Arch D (36x24) from Template, Architectural Imperial and it's okay; but when I got the Ansi C

Title Block, it scaled 22x17 not 24x18. Is there a way this can be adjusted to the correct size?

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

Dean, I finally figured it out and and now able to make any any sheet configuration with borders and title blocks that I need.

Needless to say, it's all written down in case there's a problem with memory. That's my memory! And if anyone else needs help with this, I can make the instruction sheet available. Later.........  Joe
