I'd like all workstations to look to one location on the network
for plot styles and plotters. How can I do this?
All stations are local.

Dave,

To specify a network location for plot style tables:-

From the Files tab of the Options dialog box expand the Printer Support File
Path branch and set the desired network location under Plot Style Table
Search Path

To specify a network location for plotter configurations (PC3 files):-

From the Files tab of the Options dialog box expand the Printer Support File
Path branch and set the desired network location under Printer Configuration
Search Path

To specify a network location for PMP files:-

From the Files tab of the Options dialog box expand the Printer Support File
Path branch and set the desired network location under Printer Description
Search Path

Simon,
I've been reading in the print-plot newsgroup about file sharing/locking
problems occurring when users set up their shared network plotters as you've
described. Is this not an issue?
