I am using Autocad 2010, and have upgraded to windows 7. When I publish to pdf using Dwg to Pdf.pc3, my options (single-sheet file, do not include layers, etc.) are ignored and I always get multi-sheet files with layer information included regardless of what options I select. Is this a known issue or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance for your help.

PUBLISHCOLLATE variable setting perhaps?
I have the same issue. I am using AutoCAD 2001 with Windows 7 - the PUBLISHCOLLATE is set to 1 and I still get multiple PDF files no matter what I select. I use single-sheet and multiple-sheet and get the same result.
Oops. Typo. Yep. 2011
I am using the publish command... I'm afraid I'm not sure what you mean by the default PDF option. I am utilizing the DWGtoPDF.pc3.
I see where the option is now! If I publish to PDF instead of the "plotter named in page setup". I tried it with the PDF setting and it still creates multiple PDF files.
You can't use "PLOTTER NAMED IN PAGESETUP", it must only be PDF or DWF if you want the "one file output" to happen.
Your choice of plotter makes no difference, if you want one file output you have to do it the PUBLISH command way and not your way.
Try that, then report back.
