I have not had any problems printing to scale if I make the PDF using AutoCAD. I have acrobat professional. With AutoCAD 2006 I had PDF extention buttons on my ACAD toolbar, but Inever installed it on ACAD 2009. I just got AutoCAD 2010 and will install it this afternoon. I think subscription folks have some new PDF extentions?
A lot of the prints I make are made from PDF's created in AutoCAD (not from a .dwg.) I email the pdf to the client or printing service to make prints from. It is my understanding that the printing service converts the PDF to a TIFF file with their proprietary printing software. Prints from DWG files usually look a bit sharper, but if the architect is not on AutoCAD and is coordinating the printing I have found there is less chance of a problem if you print from PDF's. I use the PDF mark-up tools quite a bit as well.
One problem I have had is that making PDF's from AutoCAD there is/was a bug when using the ACAD text masking feature, the PDF blocks out all the text. I found out how to fix it, but it is a bit of an end run. So sometimes I will not use text masking.

I’m a power Acrobat user, too, but one of my great disappointments with the program has always been its inability to scale drawings or print to scale. It sounds like you’re doing it, though, so obviously I’m missing something. What’s the secret?
