Plot Log problems

239 Views, 2 Replies

By policy, our company requires the plot logs be turned off. This is not a problem, we just set the variable to 0 in the default profile that goes out to the masses when deployed, however, we have been noticing that we are still getting the plot logs when we batch plot. After some research this morning, I discovered that there is another plot log option under Plot stamp advanced settings. Is there a way to set this option to off? There is no system variable that we can find to cover it to list  in the arg file.

Any help is ALWAYS appreciated!!

You can do it with lisp. You will have to come up with a way to get all users to run it. I have a network located acad.lsp file that all workstations run automatically, and I add any stuff like this to it when needed.


(command "-plotstamp" "Log" "no" "plot.log" "")

That certainly gets me headed in the right direction! Thanks! We have found out since I posted that it is, by default, turned off but as soon as you begin to print it automatically turns it on. Once you uncheck it again, it stays that way. Rather weird actually.
