Can I set AutoCAD to read CTB files from different drawing folder ? when somebody send me its drawings include their CTB file, I make a new directory and move the new files to that directory, but when I want to print them AutoCAD says that the CTB file is missing and I have to move that file to the AutoCAD CTB directory. Thanks,

AutoCAD still looks for them in one spot: your default plot style table location. -- Dean Saadallah Add-on products for LT http://www.pendean.com/lt --

In the directory you have set for Plot Styles in the Options dialog, put a Windows shortcut that points to your other directory, and the Plot Style files in the other directory [of the same type as the one being used by the drawing, CTB or STB] will show up in the plot dialog.
