I just loaded the free Student's version and whenever i print a dwg the dwg has the announcement "Produced by an Autodesk Educational Product." Is there a way to turn this announcement off, or is it the price one pays for using a free version? There is a dialog box that informs the user of this, but it seems to offer the advice to save the file under a different name. I assumed that if I follow that prompt the deg is printed without the announcement, but that isn't the case. Any help on this?
No, the watermark is by design.
You also need to ensure that these drawings never are imported into a commercial work or it will also watermark all of those commercial documents too.
This will be helpful as well.
