Overwrite existing PDF plot
« on: September 13, 2017, 11:12:07 am »
Why is it I can overwrite and existing PDF file using the PLOT command but not the PUBLISH command? Doesn't matter where the folder is located or its attributes.

Multi-sheet or single-sheet PDF output?
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

try {GreatPower;}
   catch (notResponsible)
      {NextTime(PlanAhead);}
   finally
      {MasterBasics;}

I have had that message at a previous place I worked at. If I had opened the PDF once during the day and closed it, it seemed to still have a "lock" on the file until I rebooted the computer.

Do you have to delete the file PDF then re print? I have to do that sometimes in certain network folders.

Yes I do. This is a local drive.
