IMAGINiT AutoCAD expert Ryan Wunderlich covered some basic tips within AutoCAD, and participants had the opportunity to ask him anything related to AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. Ryan kicked off the session
You publish to PDF (either via command line or via the Sheet Set Manager) and the layouts plotter are smaller than the paper size. Plotting individual sheets results in correct layout to paper size.
Command typed into the command line of the active window do not appear when two or more drawings are open at the same time in Civil 3D.
When I see this occur, it usually because you are using the local Navisworks importer and do not have Revit installed, only Navisworks Manage
There are a few steps involved, but the process is fairly straight forward.
Starting with the introduction of the Custom Deployment / Custom Install options in your Autodesk Account there is a behavior change with specific user profile folders.
Take a tour of the new and enhanced features in Autodesk AutoCAD 2024. New features: • Activity Insights • Smart Blocks: Placement • Smart Blocks: Replacement Enhancements: • Markup Assist • Trace
You are using the Sheet Set manager in the Web (BIM 360 or Autodesk Construction Cloud) and when you Publish to PDF, it is not honoring the CTB or STB styles you have set.
You are in Civil 3D and have brought in an XREF with Civil 3D Labels and they are showing an incorrect linetype. Here's what you need to know and do.
You have your environment to display Black for Paper Space and have Civil 3D Labels (with background mask turned on) in an XREF and you cannot read the label text
You’d like to turn off the switching behavior when hovering over the open drawing tabs and would like to turn off the preview of what is in each tab in the drawing.
This problem can be due to many things (corrupt profile, excessive layout tabs, printers that no longer exist, working over a VPN, etc.)
Ryan will feature the basic and advanced functions of AutoCAD eTransmit as well as best practices and workflow for the Migrate Settings from an older version of AutoCAD to a newer one.

On a machine that you did not create these items (PC3 file or page setups), when you select the page setup, it does not hold the page setup name
You are creating a custom deployment in your Autodesk portal and are using Civil 3D, AutoCAD Architecture or AutoCAD MEP and the icon that is created doesn’t work properly.
In Civil 3D you reset the Annotative Scale list and lose the Imperial Civil Scales (you only get Imperial Architecture scales or Metric ones). It can be fixed in a few easy steps.
This issue is caused by corrupted pressure solids in the drawing and need to be fixed.
