    Default Where to place the ctb file?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello all!

    I have ACad r-14 installed in my computer, however I have a client using 2007 (I believe) so I'm just using True View to open the dwgs and (hopefully) print.

    My question is this. Where do I place the .ctb file so that the pen style shows up in the plot dialog box? Right now it just says "(missing)"...Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Joda

    Sorry but I not work with R14 since long time so I can't remember well:
    In the File menu there is not the Plot styles manager? If it is there it will open the folder where your ctb and stb files are saved and it's there you have to copy the new one.
    But as I said I could be wrong
    HAVE A NICE DAY

    In the options menu, check the files TAB and see what your "Plot Style Table seach path is.
    They should be stored there.
    So many commands, so little time....
