Plotter configuration

Post by Michael O'Connor » Thu Sep 07, 2006 11:20 am

I'm running a HP 450C plotter and I cannot find a way to have the configuration file default to architectural paper sizes.
It seems minor, but extra key strokes are time.
Any help?

Those plotter settings are controlled in Windows in the printer settings. I do not know if they can be sorted or set any in priority. We simply access and use whatever the driver has available.

In the set up of the HP driver, you get the option to add paper sizes.

Search for the size you want, and add it to the default list.

printer settings

Could you also setup a new printer (the HP) and set its defaults to the standards you want, call it something useable and then tell Mscad to print to that printer when you want a particular architectural size. 'Normal' printing from other apps can be done on the HP printer as currently installed.
