    Default Plot from Paperspace, Plot not centered on output

    Whenever one of our drafters plots a file from paperspace he ends up with "1.#IO" in the plot scale units and the drawing never plots centered. When plotting extents the x and y values are automatically assigned as 5 and 4 inches respectively. I am assuming it is merely a preferences change. Any suggestions?

    Well, there is a "center the plot" check box in the plot dialog.. have you tried checking that?

    Yes, I have checked the "Center to Plot" box and it still places the layout with the bottom left corner in the center of the page.

    If it happens only in one system, the problem might be with the plotter configuration. Check the printable area inside plotter configuration editor. Goto File --> Plotter Manager to see the plotter configuration files. (See attached image for details).
