I will try a repair from the CD latter this afternoon. Thank you again for all of your time on this stuff, you have been a great help.
I have this problem aswell. When I plot from layout to pdf I get a pdf but it saves by default to My Documents. This is a real problem as often I am required to regenerate pdf files for minor changes several times and if I have shut down autocad and started it again it goes back to my documents for save location. Of course if I am not extreamly carefull i end up sending un updated work from the dwg folder and look stupid to the customers I am doing it for. Most of my customers hand draft and look at any such error without sympathy. It happens a lot.
Why would anyone want to save all pdf files in my documents anyways?
I was hoping the autopublish would solve this as it does have the save pdf to dwg folder option but though it tells me the plot and publish job is complete and generates a log file that confirms this, when I check the folder autopublish has not overwriten the files.
I am working with a fresh install of autocad and have all my updates. I am sure this is not a hosed install.
Autopublish, like when you close a file a PDF is created for you by the program?
or PUBLISH command, the one you deliberately launch and use actively (much like PLOT to a PDF you noted)?
Microsoft insists we all use My Documents, not Autodesk: but I don't rely on "auto" anything when my reputation with a customer is on the line. I prefer to deliberately PLOT or PUBLISH, get what I need, and deliver it to the client after I review it. Your thoughts?
