JTB Batch Plot
Digitally signed app
This app for Autodesk® AutoCAD® simplifies the process of publishing (plotting) sets of drawings to DWF and/or PDF.
This plugin can be used with AutoCAD to simplify the process of publishing sets of drawings to DWF and/or PDF. It runs as a command within AutoCAD - as opposed to a separate executable - and uses a separate executable to monitor AutoCAD health and restart it, as needed. The status of the batch publishing operation is stored to disk, allowing it to pick up from where it left off and also for any failed documents to be retried without starting from scratch. A setting is available to only publish drawings that have been modified since they were last published, making it easier to publish sets of documents on a regular basis.

Nice concept, falls short with no multi-sheet and pen assignment functions. Hard to recommend without these.
I consider adding more features as needed. What do you have in mind about multi-sheet?
Multi-sheet is a nice box to quickly tick so as to choose between single file output or a merged PDF; as is possible in the 'publish' command. I can use PDFTK builder to do it, but your program could do it all in one I bet.
Thanks for the clarification. Ok, got it. Will consider adding the option to create one or multiple PDF files.
We have added the more advanced features to our JTB Batch Publish app if you want to try it. https://jtbworld.com/jtb-sheet-set-publish
This program has saved me a lot of time! And works really well.
