GstarCAD Tips & Tricks - 59: With page setup win (save) money

With page setup win (save) money

Setting up drawing to plot is like an artist making a reproduction of a painting; the two paintings will look very similar, but they’ll never look exactly the same. This is much like plotting in GstarCAD; you’ll probably find the right combination to correctly plot drawing layout 1, but reproducing those settings for layout 2 and so on... will likely be a shot in the dark. Even if you do manage to perfectly reproduce those settings for subsequent sheets or layouts – how much time did you waste?

Instead of manually configuring the PLOT command for each drawing, you can use Named Page Setups to change the same settings for your drawing layout 1, 2, 3, and so on.
