Multiple Plotstamp settings

64 Views, 14 Replies
04-11-2001 01:32 AM
We have 4 different output devices including laserjets, injet printers and
Designjet plotters. Because of the different media sizes used by the various
devices, I would like our plotstamp settings to change depending on the
output device plotted to which we plot. I know A2ki/ LDDr2i can use PSS
files but can I have the software automatically change the plotstamp
settings whenever I change plot devices?

Wouldn't one think that maybe, just maybe, the plot stamp settings should be
part of a page setup? But noooooo. Just a hint AutoDesk. Having to pick a
page setup and a plot stamp just ain't right. Especially if you would like
to utilize batch plotting.

I have written a series of script files and Lisp functions that deal with my automated plotting and it wiil adjust the plotstamp settings for you. Even if Autodesk doesn't make the stamp part of the pagesetup (which it should be) the least they could do is allow you to load .pss files through command line input for use within script files. That way you could generate as many .pss files as you need and load the right one, without having to set all of the parameters each time in a script file. Come on R16!

You can use *.reg files for this. The plot stamp settings can be found at:
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R15.0\ACAD-1:409\Profiles\profi
le_name\Dialogs\Plot Stamp
Make your settings in acad, then go to regedit and export the above key to a
file. To reactivate the settings, reload the exported reg file by dbl
clicking.
