24th May 2005, 04:03 pm
Im not completly lisp savy so i was just wondering how would i import a page setup and select that setup to plot with through lisp. I idealey what i want to happen is to be able to have a quick key command or something that will plot any dwg with the page setup that i have already setup on a templete drawing. Im really getting tired of importing it into every drawing i open or create then setting it and then ploting, i would really like for it to be just one step. Can anyone please help me. :huh:

Why don't you setup a template with a viewport already setup. And then the LAYOUT has all your text/titles etc ??????

Well, I have a templete setup for new files and such but with existing files i open up i have to either set up all the plot features or import the templete with the plot setings. I know it sounds like im lazy but im printing the companys existing drawings all the time to look for information on parts and such and it would be real nice if i did have to setup the plot all the time and just had a quick key that ran through a lisp that ive all ready set up the pramaters in. ya see all the new drawing im creating are in papper space and most of the old drawings are in ms. i would really like to be able to import page setup with lisp and use that to plot but i could also just set each vairable in the lisp but the main problem i have with that is that i cant get the plotter to work in my lisp and i dont know enough about lisp to know why it wont work what i did so far was
(defun c:pp ()
(command "-plot" "y" "model" "\\QSPSVR01\Xerox555" "tabloid" "i"
"l" "n" "e" "f" "c" "y" "A-BSize" "y" "w" "n" "y" "y")
it crashes with the plotter. why? is this the wrong way of doing this. :huh:
