Questions:

Why can’t I see anything in a project or why are elements missing from drawing files?
Why are layers not visible?
Why is it not possible to select a privilege set in layer selection?



Answer:

Probably, you have not yet been assigned any privilege sets or the layers are frozen in the privilege set in question. First, check whether you can select another privilege set.


1. Selecting another privilege set

To do this, select the project in question and open the layer settings(Format -> Select, Set Layers). Go to the “Privilege set in list box” area at the top on the right and check whether you can select another privilege set (for example, ALLPLAN).
By default, all layers have full access rights in the predefined ALLPLAN privilege set.

If there is no privilege set with full access rights, you should assign the privilege sets correctly.
This can only be done by a user with administrator privilegesor, in the case of a project-specific layer structure, by the project owner.

Thus, log on as a user with administrator privileges and do the following:


2. Assigning a privilege set

Select the project with the frozen layers.

Open the layer settings(Format -> Select, Set Layers). Switch to the "Privilege Set" tab and click Define, modify privilege set.

Select the relevant user and assign the privilege set using the arrows.

Click OKto confirm.


3. Adjusting layers’ access rights in the privilege set

Finally, check the access rights of the layers in the privilege set assigned.
Go to the "Privilege set in list box" area at the top on the right and select the relevant privilege set (for example, ALLPLAN).

Check the area on the left to see whether there are frozen layers (gray or white). To change this, select these layers or simply select all layers using CTRL+A. Then click the Full access right (modifiable)icon in the “Change rights” area.
Click OKto confirm.

The next time you open this project, you can select this privilege set in the layer settings. You can then see all layers and set them to modifiable.

Do the same with print sets.


Alternative:

Since version 2006, the administrator has been able to select Show all users all print sets and privilege setsin the “Administrator options” group on the “Privilege Set” tab (“Design group” in version 2006). Thus, you do not need to assign new users to privilege sets. This option applies to all projects.

However, as soon as a user has been given a privilege set or print set, this option no longer applies to this user.



Note:

As a project can have its own layer structure, it is essential that you check the privilege set in the correct project.
To find out whether a project has its own layer structure, click
File -> New Project, Open Project-> right-click the relevant project -> Properties. Check whether the path settings for Layerstructuresare set to Officeor Project.

Question:

Although the server is not connected with the Internet, I would like to activate the license with the Product Key for the license server. What can I do?

Information:

The easiest way to activate and return Allplan licenses is to do this online. In other words, the server has Internet access. However, you can also activate your license on a computer without Internet access (offline licensing).

Requirements for activating a license offline:

  • You have a valid Product Key.
  • The license server is installed on the server. At least license server 2016-1-5 is installed.
    You can find detailed information on the version (Build-ID) at bottom on the left in the License Settings program.
  • You have another computer with Internet access.


Important: Activating a license offline involves two steps. In addition, you need to upload a receipt file so that you can return the license offline later.

There are the following basic steps:

  • Creating and uploading the license request file
  • Downloading and importing the license update file
  • Creating and uploading the receipt file


If you have several license server licenses, you need to do this for each license.

The online computer uses the following web page:
http://lc.codemeter.com/59885/depot/index.php



Note:

As both the license file and the receipt file are saved with the name of the container number by default, it may happen that you mix up these two files. Thus, we strongly recommend that you use meaningful names for the files. For example, include the word “license” in the name of the license file and “receipt” in the name of the receipt file.
This is particularly important if you want to activate several licenses offline.


Answer:

Activating licenses offline

To activate licenses, use CodeMeter Control Center.
Start CodeMeter Control Center.
To do this, use the Windows start menu and select CodeMeter -> CodeMeter Control Center. An an alternative, go to the Windows search box and type Codemeter.

Select the empty Allplan CM6container (long number starting with 130; gray symbol).
If the container is not available, save the file attached to the C:\Program Files\Allplan GmbH\License Settings folder. Then open this file using the shortcut menu. This imports the empty container to CodeMeter Control Center.

Select the new, empty Allplan CM6 container and click Activate licenseon the right. Select Create license request. Create a *.WibuCmRaC file for this container.


Take this file to a computer that is online. Go to the following web page:
http://lc.codemeter.com/59885/depot/index.php

Enter your Product Keyin the “Ticket” line and click Next. You can now see your license. Click Activate license.

Next, select the Fimcode 6000100area on the right.

You can see your license with all available updates. Make sure everything is selected. Click Offline License Transferat the bottom on the right.

You can now upload the *.WibuCmRaC file (Browse....) by clicking Upload license request now. This creates your license, which you can download by clicking Download license update file now. Install this license on your server.

To do this, open CodeMeter Control Centerand click File -> Importlicense.


The activated license is now visible in the License settingsand can be used for the Allplan clients.


Finally, upload the receipt file.
To do this, open CodeMeter Control Centeragain and select the new Allplan CM6 container (with the number 130-XXXXXXX).

Then click License update -> Next -> Create receipt.
Create the receipt file for this container.
Upload this receipt file using the web page.

Take this file to the computer that is online. Click Nexton the web page.
If you have already closed the web page, use the link given above and enter your Product Key once again. Then select Continue with license transfer.
Select the receipt file and click Upload receipt now.
Click OKto confirm. This completes license activation.


Note:
After you have activated the license on the server, proceed as described in “Installing and configuring the license server”. You can find this guide here:
https://connect.allplan.com/en/faqid/20150618084450.html.


Returning licenses offline
You can return licenses in the same way:

  • Creating and uploading the license request file
  • Downloading and importing the license update file
  • Creating and uploading the receipt file

Question:

How can I use Allplan to create PDF documents (Portable Document Format) that can be opened and viewed using PDF viewers such as the free Acrobat Reader?



Answer:

You can export PDF files directly from Allplan.
In addition to the design, bitmap areas and text, the direct export tool transfers layers, OLE objects, transparency and gradients.
Of course, you can also use external programs such as Adobe PDF and FreePDF to create PDF files. However, these programs do not provide all the options mentioned above. For example, transparency is not transferred.

Allplan provides the following options for exporting PDF data:

1. using the layout editor:
Create -> Plot Layout -> Export PDF Data

2. using the print preview:
Click the Export PDF Data icon in the toolbar at the top

3. exporting 3D PDF files from the animation window:
You can create a PDF file from the animation window. This file contains the 3D model displayed in the animation window.
This option is not described any further in this FAQ.


General settings:

When exporting PDF data, you specify the file name in a dialog box, where you can also make basic settings for the PDF file:

  • Resolution (in dpi)
  • Document size (paper size (with margin) or printable area (without margin))
  • Entire layout content
  • Archiving format PDF/A 1a
  • Export layers
  • Embed TrueType fonts
  • ...
  • Add to file (first select an existing PDF file in this dialog box and then select this option -> the PDF file is attached as a new page to the existing file)
  • Grayscale (version 2011 and later)
  • Open file with associated application (should be selected. After you have created it, the PDF file automatically opens in this application so that you can check it.)



Note on the page format (new in Allplan 2011):

In Allplan 2011 and later versions, you set up a page in Allplan. The page size should be used as the size for the PDF file.
You need to exactly define the size you require for the page.

To use the page size for exporting the PDF file, select the following options:

  • Select 'Paper size (with margin)'.
  • Clear the 'Entire layout content' check box, if necessary.



Notes on 1. settings in the Plot Layout module:

You can make advanced settings in the "Plot Layouts" dialog box.
The following settings are used for exporting PDF data:

  • Plot elements / options (Selection tab)
  • Paper format and orientation (Output tab); see the above notes on the page format.
  • Resizing: Resizing factor, resize pen thickness and rotation by 90° (Settings tab)
  • Pen and color assignments... (Settings tab)
    -> Line thickness for monochrome output and line colors for color output
    -> Line display in color, black or using shades of gray (can only be changed when you select a color printer beforehand)
    -> Gamma correction
  • No pen optimization/ Use one pen only (number:)
  • Plot profile (Settings tab)




Notes on 2. settings in the print preview:

The PDF file is exported as it is currently displayed on screen.
You can make the settings that are used for the "Print" tool directly in the print preview (Display tab in the Print Preview Options).



Notes:

To export PDF data in color, you need to install a printer driver that supports color and select this driver in the layout before you start exporting the PDF data.
It is advisable to install a printer driver for a large-format color plotter such as an HP DesignJet even if your office is not equipped with a large-format printer/plotter.
[Install as a local printer/ without plug & play, port: FILE, do not share the printer, do not print a test page.]
