When I print a PDF created from an AutoCAD drawing the image is not centered on the page.
Is this a problem with print settings or PDF creation settings?
I noticed on the print screen in Acrobat there is an “Auto-Rotate and Center” option and I have this checked. It seems to have no effect on the drawing not matter which size output I choose.
I have checked the PDF creation options and see nothing about page position.
I have searched “How To” and on-line help and can not find this specific topic.

Not knowing what version of AutoCAD you’re using I can only guess if this might be your problem. In R2002 when I print to Distiller I click the “Center the Plot” check box under the “Plot Settings” tab in the Plot dialog box. Doing this I’ve never had problems with the print not being centered.

I am using AutoCAD 2002. Your answer was RIGHT ON! I was only using the one button PDF conversion that Acrobat places in AutoCAD. I used your idea and printed to a PDF using the Plot command. It centered just fine.
I wonder if settings for the conversion button can be changed so that will work also.
Thanks so much.
I must say I have gotten much help over the past months from this message board. Faster and more to the point than tech support.
