Create a Paper or Plot File Drawing Set

You can publish a drawing set to a plotter or plot file.

You can assemble drawing sheets into a customized drawing set and publish the sheets to the plotter named in the page setup specified for each sheet. If the plot device named in the page setup is a paper plotter, then your output will be a paper drawing set.

If the plotter is configured to plot to a file, the sheets are saved to files in the plot file location specified in the Publish Options dialog box. Each drawing sheet's plot file is saved with the same name as the sheet, with the appropriate file extension for the file (for example, .plt, .jpg, or .bmp). The default location can be changed in the Options dialog box, Plot and Publish tab, under Plot to File.
