Plot on MAC

972 Views, 2 Replies

Hello! I'm having some trouble with plotting on my autocad for mac, along with the many deficiencies on this topic, i just can't find a way to make the "last used settings" to work, i have to plot around 50 drawings, and each time i have to edit plot settings again, it's annoying and a big waste of time. Anybody can help? Thanks!

Actually it is not very difficult.

Once you have setup first print job, and you satisfied with results, do the following:

- open your second (3rd, 4th...) drawing

- choose File -> Print,

- in Print dialog click on "Edit Page Setup"

- in Page Setup dialog check-mark "Use available page setup"

- from drop-down list select "<Previous plot>" (it changes back to <None>, but don't worry, settings is already imported)

- click "OK" in Page Setup dialog

- click "Preview" or "Print" in Print dialog

- that is all
