Adding a block when batch plotting

When I'm batch plotting several drawings, I'm trying to add a block from a page setup to each print. Does anyone know how to do this?

Stop the Plot.

Revise your drawing.

Plot again.

Think you're into the realms of scripting and/or VBA with that one. Batch plot is quite simply for plotting.


The block isn't a plot-stamp or something that could be emulated with a plot-stamp by any chance?

Block from a pagesetup? What does that mean, since there are no "blocks" in pagesetups.

Do you mean you which to use a predefined title-sheet?

Hi jts101,


We haven't heard back from you on this thread. Were you able to figure out what you were trying to do with the block and page setup?
