Inventor's Print dialogue box is in dire need of revision
Have a look at Design Review and Autocad for some good ideas
How about adding a Print preview to the model side of Inventor, IPT and IAM. Now it'a a guess of what your gonna get.
The Adobe Acrobat print dialogue box is another good example
Soon Inventor will be Autocad.......
Do you want a command line next?
When reviewing the Plotting capabilities of Inventor please include KWiKPrints 32 functionality (Sorry Kent. )
By all means please improve the Inventor print options with quick user defined configurations (for example, one click to choose A3, fit to page, black and white to a specific printer) but please please please don't take any inspiration from the way that AutoCAD does it.
I like the ability to chose the area to print - Extents, Window, etc - which have their uses, particularly when printing a self-check sheet of part of an A1 drawing onto A3 paper.
And the ability to save the set-up to the page/file.
I agree, the layout of Acad's plot dialogue leaves a lot to be desired, but some of the functionality is useful. It might also inspire the designers/developers to do something better.
After all, you can't get anything that is worse than the current Inv Print dialogue box
Indeed..... and add in the plotstamp here also.
It is absolutely necessary to add the option to print a window and next to it a "pick" button, like in AutoCAD!
It'd be nice if paper size, printer, etc. settings could be saved individually with each Sheet Format.
