I'm using Window 7 Home edition and AutoCAD 2014.
When I publish multiple pages with either pdf or printing, it only prints the first layout. I tried to repair/reinsalled AutoCAD and the problem still exist. Does anyone have the same problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Do you get error messages in your "Plot and Publish Details"?
Are you background publishing?
Are you publishing from SSM?
Are you using the built-in DWG-to-PDF print driver?
Thanks for the questions to help me clarify the problem.
1. I did not get any error messaes in "Plot and Publish Details" and the first page always get plotted.
2. I am using background publishing (do you guys recommand this function?)
3. I am publishing from publish option (File/Publish) not the Sheet Set Manager. Prior to plotting, I create different page setup.
4. For pdf plotting, I'm using the built-in DWG-to-PDF print driver.
1. So Plot and Publish Details just acts like you tried to print one page and it was successful.
2. I do NOT recommend this. If I need to "background" publish a set and work on something else, I launch a second session of CAD and let it run a normal publish, while working in the other session.
4. So is your pagesetup set to the PDF driver, or are you overriding this by "Publishing to PDF"
5. Check out the PUBLISHCOLLATE sysvar. What is yours set to?
This might seem like a stupid question...but....are you highlighting all of the tabs you want to publish? only one printing seems to suggest only one is highlighted.
I used the publish option:
File/Publish/insert different layouts from different files.
This way, i don't need to highlight the tabs in the file. The publish function used to work in AutoCAD 2013 without any problem till I upgraded to AutoCAD 2014.
I wonder if anyone encounter the similar issue with publish option.
Hi Yong Jing,
Thanks for the reply. Publish Options was set to multi-sheet file and promopt for file name (which never promopt for file name ><).
Anyway, somehow AutoCAD 2014 works again with publishing multiple pages in both pdf and printing.
Thank you all for your replies!
