    Exporting / printing schedule to PDF

    I've looked into this the entire afternoon, but couldnt find a solution. I would really want to be able to print (or export) a schedule to pdf.....including my type-images. I've seen Sofistik has this wonderful function for bending-schedules (Structural detailing 2016). The best i've come up with is exporting to excel, but then all the images become text...and i really need those images.

    thnx.

    To "print" (so, send to PDF) it needs to be placed on a sheet. Place it on a sheet and print it to PDF from there.

    i know, but i want my schedule printed on A4, and sometimes it will be counting 50 to 100 pages....so placing it on a single page isnt really an option.....i think?

    Don't think you really have any other options ... images in a schedule will only display on a sheet, especially. :/

    You will have to create a separate A4 sheet for every page and split a schedule in a schedule view to get 50 parts of it or you can save some work and try to do something like that:

    1. Create sheets with multiple titleblocks - copy titleblocks on a sheet and place them in a row, let's say 5 of them. The print area should be then (5x 210 mm) x 297 mm. If you need 50 A4 drawings, then you will need only 50/5=10 sheets.
    2. Place a schedule on a sheet and split it. Drag series of 5 parts to fit within printing area of 5 titleblocks.
    3. Copy splitted schedule to every sheet and adjust position of splitted schedule parts accordingly.
    4. Print to pdf. Now you can try to split pdf file into 5 separate A4 pages or leave it.

    I might give that last one a try, tho i guess its still is quite time-consuming. Thanx for your help.

    I believe you should be able to find that in the Autodesk App Store. In fact there is a plugin called Reports that does that.

    also just to add that the sofistik plugin (for reo) is free.
    the analysis package that goes with it will cost you a kidney though

    Couldn't you export the schedule to a .txt file then import to Excel and make pdf's from that?
