Re: Found the Fix for the AutoCAD 2010 PDF Printer

EDIT: Sorry, feel like an idiot. Realized that I didn't delete the PC3 file and rename the new. Once I did that, all is well.

DW95Grad,

Was the fix you posted below just to use through Plotting or for Publishing/Exporting to PDF?

I am successful in Plotting to PDF, just can't get Publishing/Exporting to work. Went through the repair and also recreated the pc3 file. I submitted my own support ticket, just thought I'd ask.

BTW, I'm utilizing LT 2010, so not sure if it makes a difference or not. Edited by: chrishomer3621 on Apr 1, 2009 8:26 PM

Hi!

I've got the same problem. When I want to publish to PDF it doesn't work. A single PDF print works allright!

I've set publishallocate to 1 (it was 1 allready).

This is the error message.

Rikkes,

I would try the Recreating the DWG to PDF.pc3. It won't let you save it as the same name so just name it something else. When done, delete the original and rename the new back to the original name and see if that helps.

That is what I was able to do to fix my issue.

This fix came from AutoCAD Tech Support and was to repair the PDF function in the Publish / Export Command to PDF.

I do not know if it would be different in AutoCAD LT, But I would assume not.

I did the Repair and it took care of all the issues, I would suggest you go this route.

Go back up in my post, I belive it was post 8

This fix came from AutoCAD Tech Support and was to repair the PDF function in the Publish / Export Command to PDF.

Do not redirect and rename, Tech support clearly states this will mess up functionality.

follow the last repair option with the installation CD, utilizing Repair took care of all the issues

I would suggest you go this route.

Go back up in my post

Again as I was told by AutoDesk Tech Support the repair option is the bext route to correct the PDF function in the Publish / Export Command to PDF.

Do not redirect and rename, AutoDesk Tech Support clearly states this will mess up functionality eventually.

Follow the last repair option with the installation CD, utilizing Repair took care of all the issues.

I agree with Cindy. I had the same issues. Once I used the repair option, the PDF issues seems solved.

What the ...., I've reinstalled the whole stuff. Guess what happens now...
When I decide to plot to PDF, the paper size is set to VGA! I can't choose A4 of A3 paper size.
I can't change it from pixels to mm... Not even a single PDF works anymore. Heeelp!!! Edited by: Discussion Admin on Apr 2, 2009 2:27 PM

Hi all,

Same problem here, tryed to repair but still not working!!!!
What's going on here, since the 2007 version there's always someting wrong with the program, is this new versions tested?
Also on my rightclick customization was something wrong, by draworder was nothing to select (bring above - send to back - ...).

Is it possible that there's going something wrong because we take over the migration settings from the 2009 version?

kind regards,
Dean
