Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Page setups, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2018 New Features.
- [Instructor] With the change to the system Plot dialog box, that is to say the dialog box we get when we enter in the plot command, we also have a few changes in the way that we're interacting with our page setups. The page setups themselves haven't really changed, but now they're easier to access and also a little bit easier to create. Now, as soon as I enter the Plot dialog box, I can make my changes in order to set up my plot, and now I have the option of actually saving these directly as a new page setup.
I also have the option now of applying these directly to the layout that I'm currently on. I can still choose other page setups, but now again, I can also make changes to these and either save them as new, or I can save them as the existing page setup to make updates to it as I like. So again, not a huge change in the way that we actually work with page setups, but definitely an improvement as to how we access them and a much easier way of creating them on the fly as we go.
