I am getting the following message in my ViewLog file when I generate the Artwork files
"Photoplot outline rectangle not found ... using drawing extents"
not able to understand what exactly it means.
In my board design there is no keepout area, all components extends till the edge of a board.
If any one has an idea about this please reply.

In reply to raul5565:
The photoplot outline is a shape so try Shape - Select Shape or Void then LMB the photoplot outline it will highlight, you can then LMB+Drag the corner points or vertexes to the required size but as oldmouldy says it's not necessary....

Manufacture - Artwork - General Parameters tab - File size limits.
If you have put the photoplot outline the same size as the board you will clip anything the same size or larger than the photoplot outline.
Not necessarily but it depends..... If you have lines or text that are zero width when you create gerber data they will not be created because zero width lines are not outputted. The ideal scenerio is that you define a line width for lines and a photo widht for text but the underfined line width is a safe guard that will change anything that is of a zero line width to the value you specify in this parameter setting. This setting is on a film by film basis so you can set different values for different films if you wish. The key really is do you need the item visible in the gerber ? yes then add either an actual thickness or an undefined line width. This warning just tells you it's found a zero width line and will use the undefined line width setting. It can be noted but ignored.
