Hi,

 

There is a bug in AC 2012 and AC 2011 for Mac associated with the "Edit custom paper sizes" dialog box. If you put cursor to any of text fields in this dialog and hit Return or Delete key - AutoCAD crashes.

Try to avoid this: place focus to text field, select text inside it, then start type your value, you have to type first number twice to make it appear in the text field.

Unfortunately it doesn't solve the problem. But with snow leopard it didn't crash and for me also with autocad 2011

OK,

 

Could you try to delete Custom papaer sizes (if any) before adding new in AutoCAD? You can do this for example in Preview.app if AutoCAD crashes in Manage Custom Paper Sizes dialog.

 

If you doesn't have custom paper sizes at all maybe resetting Print system in Printers pane of System Preferences can help you (you have to add printers to your Sytem again after resetting)

Thank you very much Maxim, but it still doesn't work. I have to find a method to import the pages format thant i want into this version of autocad, or i couldn't print pages borderless so i couldn't work with Lion

What kind of printers do you have in your system? (Network or local)

Have you tried to create a new one with "localhost" output in order to use it for PDF output with custom paper sizes?

Hi maxim, thank you for your interest to my problem. I have only a common Canon multifunctional printer. I always create my sheets with page setup manager to create pdf files and import them in photoshop or print it to a plotter shop (like that one of my university). i always use borderless sheets, but when i put 0 in page setup manager, autocad crashes. What do you mean with "new printer with localhost"?

Thank you very much

Okay Maxim, i don't know, but i've temporarily solved the problem. When i choose my Canon MX350 from printers list, i can choose from some paper-sizes. So sometimes i have a list and sometimes i have an other list! i know it is incredible, but so it is! Now sometimes in the paper-sizes list i have also A4 borderless! I've added A0, A1, A2, and A3 page sizes with "Manage Custom Sizes" and i only have to select my printer and the values of border become 0.00 cm.
To show you what i want to say with my orrible english, i post some screenshots.

 

Sorry and thank you for your patient
