When the Bluebeam AutoCAD® plugin creates a PDF, the page dimensions are changed to Letter.


From AutoCAD’s point of view, the process of using the Bluebeam plugin is exactly the same as a user opening Page Setup and changing it manually. To revert back to the original page dimensions: After creating the PDF in AutoCAD, go to Edit > Undo Page Setup. The page setup should return to its original dimensions.

Once a PDF is created using the Bluebeam plugin for AutoCAD, the page setup of defaults to “letter.”

Why Does this Happen?

This generally occurs when the selected printer doesn’t have a page size that matches the page setup information stored in the DWG file.

The page setup information mentioned above also includes the printer selection.


After creating the PDF, go to the Edit menu and check the state of the Undo command. If it reads Undo Page Setup, click this command and the page setup should return to what it was before the PDF was created.
