That's normal for a student version. Whoever told you this should not
happen is wrong. Any dwg you produce with this version will always have
the banner on the edges.

Hi p195apa,

Your tutor and peer group are WRONG.

The feature is a characteristic of the Educational version.

You CANNOT get rid of it in any drawing which is ever used in the
Educational version. Also if that drawing is used as a block in an
ordinary drawing in a fully licensed AutoCAD, you will still get the
same effect on your plots.

So you must make sure you isolate your educational drawings so they
don't "infect" your other drawings or worse still infect drawings in a
Commercial or Government organisation where the drawings are used for
normal non-educational purposes.

The Educational version of AutoCAD is for Educational purposes only and
Educational Organisations should not penalise you in any way for plots
submitted for educational purposes.

Regards


Laurie Comerford

PLOT to a larger sheet and frame it, or cut it out,
to remove it: otherwise it is a feature of your student program and is embedded
in your files (just in case you got the idea that buying the full version and
reusing your drawings would make it go away). Hope that helps.

Actually, it's a characteristic of the Student version. The Educational
version is the unaffected version, identical to the commercial release,
that Autodesk makes available at a discount to educational institutions.

This won't work for the original poster as they have the Student version only, so it would be instantly added back in. Edited by: COJonez on Feb 22, 2009 8:18 PM

Report this to your Dean. A lecture on ethics for your tutor and peers should be suggested. Some of the responders to this post could benefit from the same lecture. Any effort to remove the banner is a violation of your EULA. http://engineersrule.org

>i hate it as it makes the drawings look ugly

Then purchase a commercial seat of the software. You should be graded on the technical content - not the edu banner.

Not ever having had a
Student Version of AutoCAD is the plot stamp on/off button disabled in
the print setup?



If plot stamp on/off button is not disabled why not just do the obvious
and turn the thing off when you plot.?



EVEN SWITCHING OFF THE PLOT STAMP WILL STILL CONTAMINATE ANY FILES ON
THE CURRENT VERSION AND ANY OLDER OR NEWER VERSIONS. IT IS THERE TO
STOP USER'S OF THE FREE STUDENT VERSION MAKING ANY MONEY FROM THE
FREEBIE.



You tutor and the rest in your peer group need to learn the difference
between the FREE STUDENT version and the commercial EDUCATIONAL and
FULL VERSIONS there are a number of them.

Can you elaborate on the differences?
