Milton V.--re Plotting General Notes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Why don't you set your printer (in Word) to your plotter?

I have printers set in WordPerfect that I don't have, never had and won't 
have, and I have plotters specified in AutoCad that I don't have, never had, 
and won't have, but that doesn't mean that I can't use them to input text or 
vectors.  (For example, I have a plotter, HP 75?? in AutoCad so that I can 
import HPGL graphics into WordPerfect.  I save the AutoCad drawing to a file 
using the HP 75?? as the selected plotter.)
