Not sure if the image attachment engine worked here, but I have 2011 and am looking to print a set of layouts within a dwg to a pdf printer (cutepdf) using the publish feature, such that I can produce a single, multi page pdf file

However, no sheets ever get sent to the printer….

I wonder what I have missed….?

Didn't realise you were still there…

thanks..

I have 2011…

any chance of that publishing to a multi page pdf file….?

(I also have 2012, can't remember what went wrong, but think my failure to advance was connected to windows XP i.e.. 32 bit..)

Think about modern ZWCAD+ 2015 SP 2.1. One is much better and faster.

Yes, It works f.e. with WinXP (32bit) and Win7/8 (32/64bit) I recommend this version (2015+ SP2.1).

While no one has explicitly said it, I take it that the bottom line is: zwcad 2011 is unable to print to a multi page pdf file…

Just in case there is anyone out there…..
I am still trying to crack this….

I have recently upgraded to ZWCAD Classic, which I take to be current.. but I still don't find the publish to pdf option available to me…. I am only able to publish to printer or DWF, as shown in the attached image…

Does anyone know how to get this one over the line…..?

Hey,

I have the same problem. I can't print my elec schematics to a single PDF file.

I am guessing that this just does not work and it will be a major issue for me..
