If you publish a detailed drawing to a small paper size, Autodesk Design Review cannot display the detail. Zooming in does not help if the entities in the map are smaller than the pen weight used to draw lines on the paper.
To be sure that users can see all the available detail in a map, use zero-weight pens. These allow users to zoom in without causing the lines to get thicker. Zero-weight lines display as one pixel wide on screen.
Define pen settings (including weights) using AutoCAD Plot Style Tables, which are stored in .CTB files. You can see a list of CTB files in the Plot Style Manager. The .CTB files are used by page setups, which are stored in .PC3 files. You can see a list of PC3 files in the AutoCAD Page Setup Manager. The .PC3 files are used by several commands, including PLOT, PUBLISH, and the . For information about the Plot Style Tables and the Plot Style Manager, see Manage Plot Style Tables in the AutoCAD Help.
Specify a DPI setting based on how small your objects are, relative to the plot scale. The maximum number of virtual DWF dots allowed on a page is 231 (2,147,483,647 in each dimension). To find the maximum allowed DPI for your map, divide the maximum number of dots (231) by the number of inches of the longest paper dimension. For example, for 42"x36" paper, you can have a maximum DWF DPI of about 51 million dots-per-inch. However, precision increases file size: a fifty-million-DPI file is about twice the size of a 1200-DPI file (file size is not linear with resolution). Set the DPI for DWF files using the DWF6 ePlot.PC3 settings. See in the AutoCAD Help.
Make sure that the coordinate system is valid for the data in the map. For example, a coordinate system for Canada might not support converting x,y values to latitude and longitude for a map of Thailand.
