Whenever i print an autoCAD file into PDF, alignment will always run towards the bottom left hand corner.
I use cutePDF and AutoCAD LT2004 and Acrobat reader 10.0 on XP Pro.

Same file same softwares/programs of different computer, alignment is ok. How do I resolve this?

On the plot screen, there is a check box to center print in the middle of the page located towards the bottom left.   Selecting that box should solve your problem.  Reply back if this is not the case.

I've done that while plotting. The center check box has been checked.

Still not the solution.

When you preview, I assume the plot is centered on the paper.  If it is, have you tried to reinstall CutePDF?  We have CutePDF installed on about 12 workstations and for the most part it is reliable.

Edoc is our other (preferred) pdf writer.  It is not free like CutePDF, but had some nice functionality.

Hi CECTOPS, when i preview, yes the plot is on the center of the paper. Tried reinstalling latest pdf and cutepdr. All other user have no problem with this. Only my computer.

I've used other pdf maker. Still the same.

Has to be a printer setting.  A few months ago, I had a user experiencing the same thing trying to print out of MS Word.  I believe it was a paper sizing problem.  Double check to see what the native paper size is of the dwg you are working with and compare it to the paper source size and output paper size.  Let me know!

We had a similar issue and it was fixed by adjusting the Y axis -0.2 inches.
