How to Print multiple layout pages in a printer

Hi,

 

I have multiple layout pages (58 pages) and would like to print them in a printer at once. How do I do that?

 

Currently, I open 1 layout at a time then print it 1 by 1, in which its killing me specially if I do have lots of drawings.

 

Publish does saving in DWF, PDF... But does not print in the printer.

Thanks & Regards,

Willie

In order to publish to a printer you need to have a valid page setup for that printer to use. In any drawing use the page setup manager to create a new page setup. It will give you the plot dialog so you can select the printer and all other settings you need. Save this drawing and in the publish dialog box highlight all your sheets then in the page setup field pick on the top page setup and a down arrow will appear. Pick that and select import then find the drawing you just saved and get the page setup you created.

What version of AutoCAD are you using?

PUBLISH command can aim at any printer/plotter you have, as well as the two 'other' options you mentioned: it's what it does. Did you look it up in HELP before posting? It really does explain a lot.
