Permanently Suppress/exclude idw's/dwf's from being batch plotted

Hello,

 

Is there a way (besides manually doing it every time) to mark a file to be excluded from being batch plotted all the time?

Reason: A branched off separate install instructions [use one time (idw's)] reference a commonly used library component which will very rarely be used again.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi edonline69,

Have you tried to save the plot after you remove the file or page, then open and add  files as needed to that specific saved plot?

It is currently standard practice to remove files/pages here and there after generating a batch plot list. It's more for future generating plot lists to leave out these specific instruction drawings relating to a different type of final assembly.

 

I was hoping for some type of check box or tag on the specific file(s) so that it would flag not to be call up when locating associated files when selecting the final assembly.

 

Hope that makes sense.
