.stb/.ctb

I have a template drawing that when I try to plot it looks for a stb file but the plot style table area of plotting dialog will not let me choose a stb ffile. I have my plot style setting set to use named plot styles and even have the stb file set as the default but it still will not select it or even let me see it when I try to plot. Anyone have any insight?

I have the opposite.

 

I look for a ctb.

 

BUT

I set to use named plot styles in the options box and select acad.stb as default and I can STILL only see ctb files.

 

WHAT?

I would think I would be able to see the stb files. I can see them when it is time to choose the defailt when in the options dialog boxes.

 

I am using 2013 64bit and I see this issue too.

 

Hmmmm.

If I type convertpstyles at the command prompt, I can then see the stb files and choose one.

 

Does this solve your issue?

after you type convertpstyles at the comand prompt you will get ONLY stb options.

 

Type convertpstyles again and you will ONLY get CTB options.

 

Acts as a toggle.

And it does not seem to matter whether options is set to color dependent or named styles.
