DWG to PDF / Publish cutting documents off when printing from AutoCAD

Client is using AutoCAD LT 2014
When they use the Publish or DWG to PDF functions within AutoCAD, the printed drawings appear to have the alignment shoved to the right, which cuts the edges of the drawings off.

We have reinstalled AutoCAD and Adobe Acrobat Pro, and the issue persists.

I have researched and found that this is an issue with the PDF portion and is not something AutoCAD intends to publish a fix for.

As a work around, the user is adjusting the Y axis by -0.2 inches, which brings it into proper margins for printing without issues.

Are there any other solutions other than the work around listed?

Are you doing large format plots or prints that are regular copier size? Are they to scale or fit to page?

Depends how you save the exported PDF. I don't know is AutoCad has an export function, but is you use the PDF printer you have various options.

Go to the Devices & Printers dialog and select the Adobe PDF printer, right click and open Printer preferences.

Where it says Default Settings and the dropdown 'Standard' click edit.

Try and adjust the Paper size and your binding options to see if this changes the positioning, you will need to save the new settings a a new set of job options that your user can either load when he needs it or you save it with these options selected from the Default settings dropdown..

The user is going to go back to the original work around of adjusting the Y axis -0.2 inches.

The other comments were only about page setup when printing.
