TIP 90: Using the AutoCAD PDFMaker

Acrobat 7 Professional includes a Windows-only PDFMaker for AutoCAD. As with other PDFMakers, an Adobe PDF menu and a three-button toolbar are added to the program. You can convert all layers or some of the layers from an AutoCAD drawing to a PDF document.

Hundreds of Layers

Often engineering and other technical drawings have dozens, if not literally hundreds, of layers. How do you keep them all straight? In AutoCAD you can work with layer filters, and the PDFMaker gives you that convenience as well.

Organize the layers sets for your users' convenience. For example, in a construction drawing you might want to build separate layer sets for plumbing, electrical, telephone and network, and so on.
