Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Page setups, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Now that we have our layouts created,…our text and dimensions in place,…it's time to plot our drawing.…AutoCAD has quite a few tools to help us automate printing,…but most start with a good page setup.…A page setup is created for each layout…and stores things like default plotter,…page size, scale and plot styles.…When on a layout, a visor should be visible at the top,…which shows us the Edit the Page Setup button.…However, if you don't have this, we can go to File…and Page Setup Manager.…
From here I'm gonna use the plus symbol…and create a New Page Setup called Lynda 1…and press Continue.…If your Page Setup dialogue doesn't look like mine,…it may be collapsed.…In which case you need to go down…to the right corner and expand it.…From here we can select our Printer and our Paper Size.…If you're working from home or offsite…and will be printing your final set…on a full-size plotter later, you can create…custom page sizes so you can format the page…for paper your home printer may not be able to handle.…
I'm gonna click Manage Custom Sizes…
