PC3 files for Mac/Os doesn't work

I installed a 30 day trial version for Mac to see if it's works on my Mac Os.


Everything is migrated more or less (hatchpatterns, plotstyles etc) and working fine except the PC3 files won't be read by mac, so i can't print.


Anyone familiar with this problem and how to solve this?


Kind regards, Merijn

You need to post in the Mac forum, not here, and note what you migrated from instead of keeping that big secret to yourself :smileyhappy:

Hi Merijn,

You can not use PC3 files from Windows version of AC on Mac, because Mac OS works differently with print jobs. When you open DWG file on Mac, you have to recreate Page Setups in DWG files and assign new plot device, that matches printers you have on your Mac. Have to say, that you can use CTB / STB files from Windows version on Mac.
