I'm using the DWG to PDF pc3 file to create PDF's for distribution. Dwg's are all 2D and saved as 2007. But when clients and I print the PDF's (mostly Acrobat Reader) it says it is flattening the files and then prints the sheet(s).
Unfortunately this take a long time to print, depending on the number of sheets in the PDF file.
Is there a setting I'm missing, or some other fix for this?

Solved! by pendean. See the answer in context.
I found the 'Include Layer Information' option in the DWG To PDF.pc3 file. (See Attached)
But where do I find the Plot Overwrite?
Sometimes, when printing from Acrobat Reader, pick the Advanced button in the print dialog box and check "Print as Image". That will make your computer do all the processing before sending the print 'image' to the printer. Otherwise, the printer has to do all the processing.
At least that's the way I understand it.
Sometimes it helps, sometimes not.
That may compromise the quality of the print because it translates all the vector information in the PDF to raster before sending to the printer. Depends on the type of PDF and the result you expect, I can see some use of that method, though.
