Subject: Using printer configuration files

Printer configuration files store the printer information you use for specific drawings or layouts, which eliminates the need to completely reconfigure your print settings each time you print a drawing. Printer configuration files also allow you to share and reuse print settings between different drawings and layouts.

CADdirect supports the printer configuration files (PCP and PC3 files) used by Auto­CAD. This feature makes it possible to use existing PCP files saved in AutoCAD, as well as to save your CADdirect print configuration settings to a PC3 format.

You can convert an AutoCAD PC2 file to PCP format using the Device And Default selection feature in the AutoCAD Print dialog box.
