A colleague assigned to site called me asking for some help for the plotting problem that is bugging him for almost a month now .
To easily diagnose his problem I requested him to send me the print screen of the Autocad error or notification box.
A plot or publish job is already being processed in the background. Only one job can be processed at a time.
Wait for the job to complete, and then try again.
This is not actually an error but a notification for background processing in Autocad. When this is enabled you can only plot one autocad file at a time. In short, if you have 100 different drawing file, you need to wait for the previous plot job to complete before you can iniate a new plot job.
If you hate to wait and want to get rid of this job already in progress thing.. then you should turn off the background plot.
Go to Format (shortcut = OP) >> Options >> Plot and Publish tab >> unchecked the plotting & publishing background processing option.
That’s how to get rid of that “Job in Progress – - plot and publish notification” in Autocad.
