To export/print to PDF file, try use "DWG to PDF.pc3" instead.

I tried.

It doesn't plot correctly. Background is black and Paperspace does not plot. Lines are confused and text dos not plot.

Other plot machines only plot in PLT files.

Sound is very strange!
It works well on my PC, InterlliCAD 9.2 PE+ / Windows 10 64b.

The Page Setup is ok, I tried to use DWG to PDF.

The result is a black drawing in PDF file.

Other formats the result is a PLT file. In "Microsoft to PDF" the page size max is A4, and result file is also PLT.

Did I miss something ?

Hi

90% of my work is A3 so the microsoft to pdf does what I need. However if I need larger formats I use PDFCreator:
See if you can get the correct paper size with this.
Oh, I couldn't read your image, blurred.

Image is horrible !! The web page does not allow me to upload more resolution file size. Microsoft PDf dosn't allow me to add large print size. I usually print in A1 format.

I will try PDF Creator FREE to test. But all prints are black until now, with many printer machines.

It's really important to print PDF, it's crucial !!!

Hi Denis,

Can you confirm that you can print at the size you need AND that the background is NOT black

Hi Denis,
That suggests to me that the problem (black background) is with the other printer setups,
Could you try to uninstall one of the printers on the PC and re-install?

The only other thought I had is in the 'monochrome.ctb' file.
You have a white background on your monitor and this may be causing the black background

Hi Steve.

I'll try reinstall one of them. But "Dwg to Pdf" can't be reinstalled.

I use .stb file and I tried to change color of background and also table colors turn white and black to see if results change. I doesn't.
