Using print styles
progeCAD uses print styles to change the appearance of your printed drawing
without modifying the actual entities in your drawing. Assigning print styles
allows you to customize the color, pen width, linetype, and lineweight that
are used to print your drawing.
Print styles help you control what your drawing looks like when it is printed.
Rather than describe what an entity looks like on your screen, print styles
describe what an entity will look like when you print it. For example, you can
map all yellow entities in your drawing to print in blue without modifying the
actual entities. You could also map all yellow entities to print with whatever
lineweight, linetype, or pen width that you specify.
Because print styles are saved in print style tables, which are files located
on your computer, disk, or server, you can reuse them to help eliminate the
need to reconfigure your print settings each time you print a drawing. For example,
you may have multiple clients who have their own printing preferences. You can
save print styles in a named file for each of your clients. You can even share
the file with co-workers, or store the files on a network to ensure that everyone
in your office uses the same standards.
