Hi,

I work in an architectural office and receive drawings from differant consultants.

I have created differant pagesetups for each firm.

i have used the Deletepagesetups.scr to rmove there setups, as the plotter name is not the same as ours.

i have used the Import Page Setup wizard, but have some questions about it.

1. can i only add one pagesetup at a time? because we plot full size sheets, Half size sheets and 11x17 sheets. I have page setups for all of them in the same file by company.

2. How can i Set Current one of the pagesetups Hurricane imports?current

Hi,

You might find the following post useful,

You can also use the Hurricane "append" feature to join your pagesetup script to itself, over and over again.

I hope that helps!

Hi

The "Append" feature should work for adding in the addtional pagesetups.

but the i don't think the other part of your reply is what i was looking for.

what i have are pagesetups for an 11x17 printer, a full size (say 30x42 page) and a half size (say 15x21).

with these three liasted in the pagesetup dialog box in autocad i can select the 30x42 pagesetup and hit the "set currect" button so that when plotting (and i use the Sheet Set Manager a lot) i select what every drawings i want then select "publish to plotter and i get full size drawings with just a couple of mouse clicks, no opening and closing of the drawings.

for 11x17 or half size i select the drawings and then select "Publish with Dialog Box" and my pagesetups are right there to select.

The only way I know to manipulate the selection of the pagesetups is through the -plot command, unless you have a lisp to do it (along with other things) (like my previous link showed).

You can use the -PLOT command to get to the first prompt, but your script must say NO to the Detailed plot config prompt.

Command: -plot
Detailed plot configuration? [Yes/No] <No>: <-Just say no!
Enter a layout name or <Model>:
Enter a page setup name <>: <-Enter pagesetup you want to select
Enter an output device name or <HP LaserJet 6P>:
Write the plot to a file [Yes/No] <N>:
Save changes to page setup [Yes/No]? <N> Y <-Save it
Proceed with plot [Yes/No] <Y>: N <-Don't plot it (unless you want to)
Command:

Hope that gets you closer?

Regards
Bill
