Overview of Creating or Modifying a DWF6 Configuration File

Publish uses only the DWF6 ePlot.pc3 plotter configuration file. You can use the default DWF6 ePlot.pc3 plotter configuration file as installed, or you can make changes to it using the Properties button in the Plot dialog box. This invokes the pc3 editor, which allows you to make changes directly to the DWF6 ePlot.pc3 file. Although you can save DWF6 ePlot.pc3 files under other names for use with the Plot command, no other name will work with the Publish command. Any changes you make to the DWF6 ePlot.pc3 file are used whenever you plot or publish DWF6 files until you change the settings of your DWF6 ePlot.pc3 file again.

NoteIf you are going to make changes to the DWF6 ePlot.pc3 file, make a backup copy of the file first in case you want to use the default settings later. If necessary, the default DWF6 ePlot.pc3 file can be re-created with the Add-A-Plotter wizard.

These settings may change file size and plot quality, depending on the content of the source drawing for the Design Web Format™ (DWF™) file. You can specify the following settings when you edit the DWF6 ePlot.pc3 configuration file:

NoteDWF files intended for plotting should be configured with a white background color. If the background color is set to black, color 7 objects will be plotted as white. For all other background colors, color 7 objects will be plotted as black.
