Setting up Arch D size Layout


Recommended Posts

Started in print settings: drawing sheet set-up: custom then made a size called "Arch-D (24" x 36") put the size in the width/height and left setting at 1" = 1"


All looks good when I select it as my new saved layout but, when I go to export as a PDF I get a black sheet at 24" x 36" ... select any other paper size other than my new Arch-D (24" x 36") and everything shows up ?


What am I missing here?



HD Pro 20

*** I see you said Pro 20 -- don't know what Pro 20 is. ***


Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

Rookie65 you are correct. I set it up properly in drawing sheet and layout but, the HD-Pro 2020 does not allow print/PDF generation beyond 18" x 24". Tech support confirmed.


Upgraded to HD Pro2021 and it worked!
