Q - question

How to print a multi-page PDF from AutoCAD?

A - answer You may want to plot (publish) multiple drawing sheets to a single PDF file, or plot the sheets as a single job (to be not interrupted with other jobs in your plotter queue).

In AutoCAD 2008 (and higher) you can use the PUBLISHCOLLATE variable (set it to 1) to publish (PUBLISH) all sheets and all selected DWG drawings in a single job, to a single multipage PDF file.

In AutoCAD 2007 or older AutoCAD versions and other CAD applications you can make use of DWFs. First publish a multisheet DWF and then print it from DWF Viewer (Design Review) to PDF over a PDF driver (pseudoprinter).
