Batch Plotting

I was plotting from other workstation that has Acad 2005 (I work on 2000i)
I did not see "Plot all layouts", or with Selecting all layouts (same page
setup) plot was grayed out. I could not find Batch Plot.
???
How to plot multi pages & let say to different formats -
e.g... 30 layouts to set of JPG + PDF + hard copy = 60 pages.
Batch plot has worked perfect.
Please help. RC

That would be handled with the sheetset command. Read up on it and good luck.

or PUBLISH might serve you better. I use it regularly for batch plotting.

Make a named Page Set up in your template drawing. Start the PUBLISH command. Then when you have selected the tabs you want to plot, highlight them, and pick import from the drop down list.

If you want to send your plots to different printers, or they have different sheet sizes, yoo'll need several Page Setups. But you can still do that in one PUBLISH job.
