Publish command failing when publishing to PDF 22"x34"

Hi,   I am having trouble using the publish command when I set the plotter to a 22x34 sheet.  We are able to print to an actual plotter just fine at that size, but when we try and make a pdf set at that size, it just errors out.  

 

The error I get is

 

"ERROR: The current device does not support the requested media size."

 

Anyone have an idea about how to correct this?  

 

Thanks,

 

I realized there was a printing and plotting section of the forum after I made this in the Autocad 2012 forum.

The error means you chosen PDF driver doesn't have that page size on offer for you to use.

You provide no additional information for anyone to start helping you: what PDF driver are you using?

Good point!  we are using the Adobe PDF converter driver and using the 9.5.0.0 driver from 8/19/2010.  I can't seem to find a newer one and that seems strange to me.  

 

I am using AutoCad Architecture 2012

Adobe sells a "standard" PDF driver that does not offer larger sheets sizes or the ability to add them.

They do sell a "pro" PDF driver that can and will do that.

 

AutoCAD 2012 comes with a built-in PDF driver, for free, that has none of these limitations: in the PLOT pop-up, unless you deleted it, it's called DWG TO PDF.PC3. use that one instead.
