PDF Layer Generation from DWG file

Jul 3, 2012 7:31 AM

Tags: #.dwg_file_layer

I am able to generate a PDF with layer controls (visible and invisible) when opening a DWG file from Acobat X.   I however with same file can not generate the same layer controls by using Adobe.pc3 or DWGtoPDF.pc3 from AutoCAD.   I either get the layer in the list or don't.   I find that I can not generate the layer but have it non-visible at the same time.

    Are you using the PDFMaker macro in AutoCad to convert your layers? If so, are you not seeing the Setting control for the layers? Or, is it not working properly?

    Within AutoCAD, look for the Acrobat PDFMaker toolbar or in the Adobe PDF menu. However, according to the compatibility chart for the PDFMaker macros, AutoCAD 2012 isn't supported in Acrobat X at this point, which may be the cause of the problem.
