Q - question

AutoCAD suddenly publishes multiple drawings to a single PLT file.

A - answer If you use PUBLISH to plot multiple drawings or sheets to PLT file(s), AutoCAD 2008 uses the PUBLISHCOLLATE variable (1 or 0) to decide whether all drawings are written to a single multi-sheet plot file (single job) or whether the individual drawings are written to separate .PLT files (separate print jobs).

Plot management applications and PDF generation is also affected by this.
