AcroPlot Pro, improves the ability of architects,
engineers, and construction (AEC) users to finally create PDF files with
true what-you-see-is-what-you-print (WYSIWYP) capabilities from AutoCAD
(DWG) files. "Lines merge" support makes it possible to display and print
line work with overlapping intersections translucently in PDF files.
Without lines merge" functionality, AutoCAD files that are converted to
PDF do not display or print exactly the same way in Acrobat Reader® as
they would in AutoCAD.
PDF files made from AutoCAD are up to 14 times smaller in size than other
CAD to PDF software applications. This is due to AcroPlot Pros ability to
render true type fonts from AutoCAD as searchable true type text in PDFs.
Files that contain pictures and scanned images also have optimized file
sizes with no sacrifice in quality.
Controls for extracting attribute data from any combination of blocks
within AutoCAD files to the PDF "document summary" fields also allows
auto-indexing into enterprise document management (EDM), web content
management (WCM), digital asset management (DAM) and fixed content
management (FCM) systems.
AcroPlot Pro includes an embedded viewer that serves as a crucial
component to the conversion process. Users can reduce errors by viewing
files before converting them to PDF or DWF. If a PLT or scanned image is
previewed and appears to be rotated or upside-down, users can change the
orientation to the correct position. Conversion to PDF or DWF with all the
pages and drawings in the correct orientation improves viewing and
eliminates the need to reshuffle pages after printing.
AcroPlot Pro converts an extensive list of file formats to either Portable
Document Format (PDF) or Design Web Format (DWF), and includes three
components: converting from within AutoCAD, a separate Windows
application, and a Windows system printer driver. Unlike other
applications that create PDF or DWF files, AcroPlot Pro has advanced
capabilities for creating both formats from one application making it an
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
