publisher from archicad - print current zoom

Anonymous

This is probably a button somewhere we can't find. We have a lot of detail views set up with "current zoom" and would like to print each detail view on a single page. But if we try to print those views via publisher in Archicad, it prints the entire page, not the zoomed view. In the ordinary scheme of printing the zoom view would be available in the Archicad menu of the print settings "print current view." Publisher in Archicad doesn't seem to have this option ? I think we used to be able to do this from archicad without having to make a plotmaker layout book with 1 detail per page, but its driving us crazy today! What are we missing?

Archicad 9, Mac OSX 10.3.7, printing to HP laserjet 5100
Thanks!

I could be wrong, but I believe the "current zoom" settings only work on Plotmaker.

If I understand the question right, you could create an individual view for each detail, and when you create the view in view editor, select "current zoom"

I think this may help you:

But its not in publisher

Set up PDf as default printer.
In ArchiCAD > Print
>select 'current view only'

This doesnt help with having titleblocks on each print to a PDF : (

Don't know if this would work for your needs, but you can marquee the area you want printed, and have it just print the Marqueed area (a setting in the print menu).
