Is it possible to add a new custom paper size in plot configuration (PublishToWeb JPG.pc3) using C#?
Thanks

Hello everyone,

I'm also interested in this topic, someone has found a solution or same input to start? I need a simple C# code to add a custom paper size on PublishToWeb JPG.pc3 printer.

 

Thanks

I believe that there is neither .NET API nor COM API available to manipulate paper size defined in *.pc3.

I agree with Norman.  My office plots using all custom .pc3 files created by me and used by my .net application.  In my troubles getting that to work I didn't find a way to code different configurations of .pc3 files.  Instead I use a custom .pc3 file for each plot configuration possible.  It may seem like a lot but they are not difficult to make and it allows me to use explicit settings per plot instead.

This might have some possibilities.

I'm the author of the PiaNO plot configuration API.  Just wanted to swing by and let you guys know I'd be happy to answer questions and provide further development if there's something currently not supported.  I haven't gotten a chance to really use it much after pushing the project online, however I'm happy to help and answer any questions you might have.  Also, I haven't tested adding in a new papersize node yet, but theoretically there shouldn't be anything preventing it.  I might play around with this later on in the week if I get time.

 

Regards,

Parrish
