    Question Plot a Multi-Sheet DWF with Landscape sheets and Portrait sheets

    Hello,
    I have a map of our County and I have Layouts for each City. Two of the layouts have the title block in portrait mode because of their length North & South. All of the rest are Landscape. I want a multi-sheet DWF so we can jump to any town. Is there a way to plot a multi-sheet DWF file with two of the sheets in portrait mode? It seems that I can have different page setups for these layouts but then I don't see how to make it multi-sheet.

    Thanks,

    Daryl

    Are you saying that you have tried plotting this set of layouts and it fails, or that the output is multiple, single-sheet DWF files?

    To create a single, multi-sheet DWF:

    In the Publish dialog, click on "Publish Options", then under "General DWF options", find the DWF type field and make sure it's set to "Multi-sheet DWF"

    If you are using 2008, see also the PUBLISHCOLLATE sysvar, but in my test, if you do the above steps, this sysvar is ignored.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I just figured it out. I thought that when I tried the last time that it cut off the portrait. I set each drawing to its correct page setup and tried it again and it worked this time.

    Thanks,
