I have TrueView 2011.  Is there a way to have the plot style stay at a certain one all the time?

AutoCAD is set up to store that information inside the file inside each tab, and system/program settings are ignored: the free viewer follows that rule/setup as well.

For God Sake, why TrueView assumes that there should be same plotting device that DWG has as current. It Shows dialog box BLAH-BLAH-BLAH plotter not found.... and 60 years old receptionist, scared to death calling IT.  Of course not found. That why we have only 25 Autocads with one plotter, and 450 TrueViewers with 200 printers.


How does end user supposed to print from TrueView knowing nothing about Autocad??? and about its fancy PLOTTING dialog box.


Where is the simple, windows (word) look like print dialog box.


Autodesk has squeezed out all free viewers by creating custom objects, but TrueView did not replace these viewers.
