Batch Plot



  • Important thing: after adding drawings you have to select all files in the list to make Options of Batch Plotting available

  • If the set of drawings is too big, make sure your setting is correct - print first couple of drawings.

  • You can setup plotting preferences or import page setup from existing drawing in Batch Plot Utility dialog window

  • Watch batch plot: paper jams; printer out of paper; corrupted drawings etc. - common bad surprises.
