Hi everybody i would like to know how to set the layers plot color from model. i can't use the page set up manager since when i do, autocad crashes..thanx
You can try this trick:
1. Create new drawing, select menu Format -> "Plot Style", open drop-down list, scroll to the bottom, create new plot style table with color settings you need and save it.
2. Close "Plot Style" dialog by selecting "cancel"
3. Switch to your first drawing, ensure that noting selected in drawing area, and in Properties palette find "Plot Style" section, open "Plot style" drop-down in it and select Plot style you created in step #1.
4. Save your drawing, try to plot from Model.
hi thanks for the help...i'm the same person who wrote you for the problem of printing from the model, unfourtunately in the list of the commands i can't use there is "plotstyle"...i tryed to create a ctb file with the plot style table editor and chose it form the properties pallet but it shows only the plot style table you already used in autocad..=(
those unworking commands are getting me mad..please help me.
See my advise in another post about "repairing" AutoCAD installation.
You need to put your CTB file to the "~/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/roaming/AutoCAD 2013/R19.0/enu/Plotters/Plot Styles" folder. Then restart AutoCAD in order to see your custom Plot Style table file.
I mean that after you create .CTB file, you have to copy (or move, or place) to the "~/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/roaming/AutoCAD 2013/R19.0/enu/Plotters/Plot Styles" folder on your Mac:
Then restart AutoCAD in order to see your custom Plot Style table file in Properties palette.
