Storing a Page Setup

Unlike most other programs, AutoCAD offers hundreds of page setup options. It can be quite a chore to keep track of and maintain all these options. But as you settle into using AutoCAD, you'll probably find that you'll set up a few plotter configurations and stick to them. AutoCAD 2012 lets you save a page setup under a name to help you store and manage the settings you use most.

You've already seen the Page Setup Manager dialog box on your way to preparing a page for printing. In this section, you'll take a closer look at this useful tool.

Follow these steps to create a page setup:

  1. imageIn AutoCAD, click the Page Setup Manager tool in the Output tab's Plot panel. You can also right-click the Quick View Layouts tool in the status bar and choose Page Setup Manager. The Page Setup Manager dialog box opens (see Figure 8.14). So far, you've used only the Modify option in this dialog box to modify an existing page setup. Now you'll try creating a new setup.
