of the Task Pane, right-click the
map book name (in this example, it is Default-ModelSpace) and click Publish
- Specify a name for the output file.
- If prompted, choose a sheet set.
- If you see the message that tells you
the job is processing in the background, click OK.

in the lower right corner of the window.
Place your cursor over
the animated icon to see which page of the map book is being published.

Where you are now
You customized a map
book template and
used it to create a map book. You published the map book to DWF
format, so you can share it with people who do not have a copy of AutoCAD Map 3D.
These people can download a free viewer, Autodesk Design Review,
to see the maps. Autodesk Design Review is available from http://www.autodesk.com/designreview.
