Printing Multiple Saved Views to PDF

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to create a script that will print all my "saved views" as PDF's in one step. Is it possible and does anyone know where I can begin?

Thanks

Derek

Current versions of Vectorworks include Export PDF (Batch) which will print saved views and sheet layers to a PDF.

one more question. Does it only export the pdf's at full size? Is there a way to export a half size? Normally i don't export pdf's i usually print them. So if i need a half size i simply set the paper size to half and print at 50%.

There is not way to scale just for the PDF export. It uses the current printer settings for the document for saved views and the printer settings specified by each sheet.

There is also a Batch Print command which will send multiple sheets straight to the printer.

If you're exporting to PDF, Acrobat (and most other PDF viewers) have an option in print settings to scale the page to the current paper size in Print Settings.
