Should we convert to stb plot styles versus the ctb we currently use? Is it a problem with all the layers that are automatically created in LDD? What does everybody else do/prefer? Thanks, Todd

I think STBs have a slight advantage over CTBs but that is definitely not reflected by the number of users. The overwhelming majority of my clients prefer CTBs. No, it should not be a problem layers automatically created by Land Desktop.

The stb files are easier to use but most companies continue to use ctb since all their blocks, pre 2000 drawings and templates were created using ctb. If I had a choice and was starting from scratch I would use stb. The conversion from ctb to stb for the blocks does not take that much effort. Your templates would have to be converted as well. I have attached a simple yet effect stb file. Gordon "Todd W" wrote in message news:4211155b$1_3@newsprd01... > Should we convert to stb plot styles versus the ctb we currently use?
