I've made templates from which I have created page setup and from those I have saved both the pc3 and the pmp.
I've spent the last three days to manually import the page setup to almost 200 dwg (which are used with several scripts)...
For some unknown reasons I have the page setup settings changed, mainly from portrait to landscape...
So I'd like to know why the pc3 was NOT used ?

Solved! by c.dufrene. See the answer in context.
Forget it... I'll do it manually
But Thanks anyway for your time. Cheers.
Windows 7 64 bits
In our previous environment (AutoCAD 2005LT), the menus were heavily customised with lots of new buttons with scripts behind that automatically insert templates, fill attributes, etc...
-migration to Windows 7 64 bits
-print server crash
I have to rebuild a new .cuix with all the features.
So in all .dwg and .dwt I found in our server, I manualy change the page setup.
but some of them switches orientation and I would like to know why before changing again...
More questions, forgive me: did you all use pagesetups (and/or PC3 files) in LT2005 like you wish to do now? nothing has changed in that respect, they both should work the same.
Or is this a new approach? and why if it is? and what did you used to do in LT2005?
As per print server crash and 64 bits programs, I redefined page setup, pc3 and pmp files
I was not the "creator" of the previous environment so I just mimic all he had done.
As far as I know pc3 and pmp define printer settings and the page setup gives paper orientation, plot style, plot area, etc...
Perhaps there's a bug in one script that import those page setup ?
it's more complex than that...
yes, there's a single button, but behind there are scripts that launch .bat that launch other scripts and then open an Excell and then...
It's a whole procedure to "quickly" plot drawings from other company’s, with very, very small AutoCAD knowledge.
I found a way to correct everthing I did this on this forum: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Visual-LISP-AutoLISP
Unfortunately, it seems to be only valid for AutoCAD full, NOT the LT :-(
