Giday there I have downloaded "Autocad" for mac and have activated it as a student.
Now when I start the program I receive an error message.
"The drawing file being opened was not created by a productfrom an
Autodesk Education Suite.If you save this drawing, it will always be
plotted with the following plot stamp.
PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT
It is recommended the you save this drawing with a different name.
Sorry but I'm totally new to this - where do I go to change this?
Thanks in advance for your help.
If the drawing you are opening in the educational version was created by a regular Autocad product, the educational version will add the PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT plot stamp when it's saved. if you don't want to have that permanently added to the original file, you need to change the name as you save. Then the original drawing file can be opened with other Autocad products without having the PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT plot stamp added
I don't believe there is any way to change that.
Thanks for the reply. This is not one of my drawings as I have not done anything in the program as yet. This is the very first thing that comes up before the program starts. If I am unable to change this, annoying as it is, then I will have to persevere with it. Like is said "it only happens when I launch the program.
Your AutoCAD is opening a file that has never been saved in the EDU version: it ALWAYS opens a file when you start the program, nature of AutoCAD, so that is the problem. The above answer, while accurate, is not relevant the answer to your issue I believe.
You'll have to wait for someone that uses EDU software regularly to answer why it happens and if there is a known cure, unless you wish to have someone help you create a startup file you can always use.
I have this exact same problem, and it's something that REALLY needs to be fixed! In my drafting class, I can't print anything because it has the stupid message all over the prints! Just DUMB! PLEASE AUTODESK! HEEEEELLLLLLPPPP!!!!
I followed the advice, changed the file name, the file path ut without any effect. I hope there is a better solution for this annoying problem.
I am having the same problem... did you find a way to open it??? It just keeps trying to load and then nothing happens??
Hi, just wondering if you found a way to fix this problem, I purchased the program, installed it and now Im not able to open it at all, the same message comes up and it loads.. but nothing happens. Can you help me?
Im in school and taking Drafting. This program is exactly what the message is saying - Education Suite. So no matter the drawings being opened, for as long as you are running this suite it will stamp everything with the Education Sutie border headings.
Unfortunely I dont think there is a resolution for this unless you upgrade your license. This suite is meant for educational purposes, so any drawings you create can't be used to make money.
I have looked into ways to try and remove it, and have come up empty handed.
