How to fix the “page setup” for all "new" dwg files?
I couldn’t know how we could customize the default plot dialogue settings that the AutoCAD provides as we click the “Plot” command.
For example, each time I start with a new dwg file and click “plot” then I got some default settings.
Then how the settings of the “plot” command can be customized such that as we start with a new dwg file then the customized settings appear?
Thank you for the help,
If you always want to print/plot with a certain group of settings, the solution is to always start new work with a template (DWT) file where all your preferences have been defined. If you set this DWT as your QNEW (Options > Template settings) and include everything in a title block, you'll have exactly what you want.
Don't look to AutoCAD to do this for you. You need to create this.
Under Page Setup Manager, create a new page setup with desired plot settings. Left-click the layout tab you want these settings to apply to, then right-click this tab, select Page Setup Manager from right-click menu, and double-click (double left click) the page setup you just created to apply the print settings to the tab. You will then see the name of the page setup appear following the layout tab name but in parentheses.
I like that if you change the plot settings in the page setup, all layout tabs referencing the page setup will automatically update. Also, copying a layout tab to make a new one will retain the reference to these settings.
