Subject: Specifying pen and line printing options

Each layout in your drawing can specify certain print settings that apply only to lay­outs: lineweight scaling, print style display, and paperspace print options.

To set pen and line printing options

   1   Click the Layout tab or Model tab for which you want to set pen and line printing options.

   2   Do one of the following to choose Page Setup Manager ():

   On the ribbon, choose the Application button then choose Page Setup Manager, or choose Output > Page Setup Manager (in Print).

   On the menu, choose File > Page Setup Manager.

   On the Format toolbar, click the Page Setup Manager tool.

   Type pagesetup and then press Enter.

   3   Select the desired page setup, then click Modify.

   4   Choose the desired settings:

   Print style table — Select a print style table to apply during printing, or select None. If you select a print style table, you can click [...] to modify its settings.

   Print transparency — Select to print entities with their assigned transparency. Note that turning on this option can slow printing. Also note that the PLOTTRANSPARENCYOVERRIDE system variable can override trans­parency print settings for all layout viewports at once.

A print style table and print transparency cannot be used at the same time.

   Print entity lineweights — Select to print entities with their assigned lineweights. If you turn off lineweight printing, entities print with a default outline.

   Print with print styles — Select to print according to the print style settings in the currently selected print style table.

   5   Click OK.

   6   Click OK.
