    Layout to PDF printing??

    Thanks Renerabbitt! That was it. I had the lines and colors (Slightly transparent) so they go lost in the transfer! All fixed and can now re-submit!! DzinEye, Save as pdf!

    Layout to PDF printing??

    Ok, I'm baffled?? I am in revisions request from the village on my permit application. One of the things is the Wall detail. I have created a "Wall Legend", explaining all these details. It looks fine. I go to transfer it to pdf for printing, it looks fine. Once it is transferred, it changes???? It leaves out some of the details they are looking for? I am attaching "Screenshots" so you can see the stages and the variations I'm dealing with. The first & second are, active Layout page showing wall legend detail & wall detail on layout drawing. The third and forth are, wall legend & wall detail in Print preview as I'm sending it to PDF. The fifth and sixth are what actually comes out in the pdf version???

    Layout Templates page reference

    Thanks! The page numbering thing I had fixed already (Many ways to skin a cat, so to speak), but the scaling thing is good. How do I then get that to the "Layout set" in a certain location (Title block scale:) easier than sending the whole page and cropping it down then moving it into place on page "0"?

    Layout Templates page reference

    Yes, Layout is where I create a "Layout" template. But, I was answering to the previous comment about using %view.name% instead of what (I believe) you posted referring to it as %view.label%? ............OK, I found Label vs name in the drop downs. Seems to function ALMOST the same, except that, label pulls from Label: and Name, pulls from Selected page. Which is why I change all the verbage to Page vs P. When I first did this, It showed up as "Page" vs "P" because I didn't realize where exactly it was pulling from. So, to make it easier, I changed the verbiage. (Plan vs Layout) Was possible trying to pull the plan page information because I'm pulling from multiple plans for this layout. So now that this has all been changed and working OK (showing the correct information) it shows a flaw in the system (At least in my opinion?). Because everything has to be done on "Page 0" of the layout to automatically generate into the following pages, my "Layout Page Table" shows the first line as being blank, (See below)Page 0. But for now, it's good enough. No advice on the scaling issue?

    That's the way it comes up in my system?? Should I be picking the info from a different area?

    Duh! Thanks! That's what I'd refer to as, A "Brain Fart"! Thanks! All fixed and I appreciate your help! As for the scaling thing? I believe I'm correct on the scaling printing correctly but, changes as working in plan while zooming in and out? Is there a way to make it display what it will print out no matter what scale I'm working on (Zoom screen)? Thanks again!

    I thought I did that....must have posted the wrong one? Did a few screenshots and saw that one, but apparently, I didn't delete it. Thanks!

    I have no idea where that is?? ..............OK I found it, I think, It's blank?? What I found was, "Marker defaults - Default". Is that what you put up? I'm not as worried about the scale because, when I print it, it should be correct on printed page, but, yes, I need to work on that as well. What I am having a problem with is, Referencing the page layout through the "insert" arrow for the text box?

    Kbird1, what part of the layout? The whole file? Signatures, Again, is there something other than the "Computer Type" & "Chief Architect" version you are looking for?
  11. Hi All. I'm trying to set up a layout for a project (& Template) and have run into an issue? When I put in my links (Text Inserts) for auto generated data, it is off by 1 page? The layouts start on page "0", (The non printed template and home page which generates the data to the following pages of the layout). The layout pages show correctly in the "layout Page Table", page reference & number, and all the other auto generated information, except when I try to input "Layout" information? As you can see by the screen shots, "Page: 0", On page 0, but, the reference above it, says "Page Description: Index Legends, Notes & Information", which is on page number 1 not 0? I'm on a I-mac, with X-8 Thanks David

    Remodeling Drawings

    Hi All, New topic! I am trying to create Remodeling drawings for a project to present for permit. I can't seem to do it all in one drawing? e.g. Existing walls, Demo Walls, and Proposed walls on the same plan because even with the layers turned off, they interfere with other layers? The Village wants separate sheets (Layout sheets) to reflect the existing, demo (to be removed) and Proposed. I have created different walls for different layers, but, when I work in other layers, they will interfere with what I am drawing in other layers? The only thing I can think of is, work in different "Plans" and send to one "Layout"? Will that work? (Would rather work in one "Plan") David I-Mac on X8
