im using AcroPlot to print to pdf (because the dumb abobe acrobat wont print with 64-bit) and im wondering if there is an easy way to name the print outs. when it pulls it up it automatically calls it Drawing Sheet: A- and then the first 2 digits of the number. which is annoying when you have a lot of sheets. any advice!?!

Not sure what AcroPlot is, however we ditched the plot to PDFs and have gone with DWF. In my opinion it is much easier and our clients love that fact that they can view there model in 3D and see 2D construction documents. It is very internet friendly. We also do reprographics for local surveyors , architects & contractors and our prefered method of file plotting is DWF.

Since DWF is an autodesk thing there are no issues with the naming of files.

DWF may not be an option for you but if it is it is well worth the change over.

I second the DWF printing.  Printing to PDF is also much more efficient and easier once the project is in PDF format.  You can print multi-paged PDF files using CutePDF from the DWF viewer, which is uber nice!


If DWF is not an option for you, it needs to be since it is built in and free.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

We have Adobe Acrobat 7.0 installed with the virtual PDF printer. When I print I select that as the printer, select print to file, choose a location, don't even worry about the name. And then after it makes my plot files, I select them all, right click and choose, combine in Adobe PDF and then save it, which gives me a multi-sheet PDF and then I just delete the plt files. Piece of cake, much easier than with stupid AutoCAD...

 The only reason we don't use DWF files is because we work with a lot of non-design people. The people with the money, and that's a universal file format nowadays.
