I have been using autocad 2011 on a 4 year old Mac Book Pro for some time, with things working OK after having installed the 2 upgrading sets available.
Now I have switched to a brand new mac book pro (Snow Leopard) and I get the program starting and working but I have problems plotting/printing to PDF and on physical printers.
- I use a HP 1217 all-in-one printer, which prints well from other programs. No driver needed to be installed since OSX seem to recognize the printer by itself.
- In the System Settings, my first hand choice of printers is the HP printer. A PDF 8.0 printer is also visible in the list of available printers (see the attached file PRINTERS)
- When I try to print either directly from the model space or from a layout paper space, I get error messages saying:
"There was an error saving the file /Users/sannanordlander/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/roaming/AutoCAD 2011/R18.1/enu/plotters//HP_psc_1200_series(temp).
"There was an error saving the file /Users/sannanordlander/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/roaming/AutoCAD 2011/R18.1/enu/plotters//Adobe_PDF_8_0(temp).PCM"
Depending on wether I try to plot on the HP printer or to a PDF file. Same goes for when I try to save as pdf (Adobe PDf / PDF)...
- After the error message is shown, the program is blocked and I have to force quit it...
This is all very annoying and I would be very happy for any ideas of how to solve the problem.
(I transfered all my programs and settings from my old mac using a fire wire cable and the transfer manager program. I had to create a new user on the new computer, maybe some settings have gone strange during that process?)
