Not that I know of.

The attached drawing is one that was giving me problems.  I've erased everything from it, purged all and simply added a rectangle so there'd be SOMETHING there.
I still get the problem with this dwg file.

Anyone see anything?  Co-workers do not have the same issue as I'm having.

I didn't really think you (or anyone else for that matter) would be able to.

I had a problem I am trying to remember and it seems it was similiar, but it boiled down to a setting in Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro extended. Do you have that installed?

I have opened the file.
I have created and set a named page setup
I set it current
I plot
At prompt for file name I create Attached file
There is NO error


In discussion with other coffee been chewing string theorists; it is agreed
your drawing is infected with a number of fractional dimensional objects
that are shifting between UCS on you during the plot command
and if not for the low power output of your CPU
you would now be sitting right in the middle of a black hole
due to the number of interdimensional collisions that are taking place
this could explain the disappearance of the other users reporting
this same error, it's possible they were running 600 watts or better
for their power supply

it is suggested that you INSERT one of the afflicted drawings as a block
into a drawing from a template that you know was made entirely in this dimension
then explode that block; this should rid you of the interdimensional objects you are unable to print

Have you tried unistalling it. I had a problem a couple of weeks ago where it would freeze almost everytime I tried opening, saving, etc...... anything where a file dialog box poped up  and had to shut down computer.

I could repair and reinstall and that would not fix it. I tried to unistall it and failed.
So I ran Windows Install Clean-Up on it deleted the main folder and it has worked great.
Of course I re-installed it.

If this is happening on all printers/plotters and not just pdf, and only on print preview.... seems like a video card problem, but I don't really know.

No, it's not just PDF... it's happening regardless of which printer I have selected... and yes, it's only on certain drawings and only when I do a preview.  If I print one of those drawings without doing a preview (or trying to publish them), they work fine.  Definitely a strange issue.
