To publish Object Properties from Autodesk Architectural Desktop 2006 requires only 4 easy steps.
- In the Format menu select AEC DWF Publishing Options. This dialog box will display:
At this point you can alter your object properties to export or accept the defaults. After doing so, you have a Published Properties List (ppl file) that you can use later in the process.
- Now you must use the publish command, not plot, to get object properties in your DWF, and you need to do a bit of configuration (or at least check your configuration). Invoke Publish from the file menu. Select Publish Options
- Now, verify or set AEC Property set data to "include." Verify or set the AEC DWF Options to the Published Properties List (ppl file) you configured in step 1.
- Now publish your DWF.
Thanks to QA Technical Lead, John Schmier, for the list of steps. These object properties, and the workflow solutions to which they contribute, help DWF go beyond the paper.
