Changing a drawing's print style table type

When your drawing was created, it was set up to use color-dependent print style tables (.ctb files) or named print style tables (.stb files). A drawing can use one type of print style table at a time. If necessary, after a drawing is created you can convert the drawing to use the other type of print style table.

If you can’t remember what type of print style table is assigned to your drawing, use the PSTYLEMODE system variable to determine the print style table type.

To change a drawing to use named print style tables

  1. If you want to reuse any of the existing print style information, convert your color-dependent print style tables to named print style tables. For details, see Converting print style tables
  2. Open the drawing that uses color-dependent print style tables (.ctb files).
  3. Type convertpstyles, and then press Enter.
  4. If you have already converted your individual color-dependent print style tables to named tables, click OK in the prompt that displays.
  5. If you have not converted the tables, click Cancel. First use convertctb to convert your color-dependent print style tables to named tables. If you do not, all of the print style information you specified in your drawing will be lost.
  6. Select a named print style table (.stb file) that you want to use with the drawing.
  7. Click Open.

NOTE If you have not converted a color-dependent print style table to a named print style table, you will be warned that the table you have selected does not contain color mapping and the drawing cannot be converted.


To change a drawing to use color-dependent print style tables

  1. Open the drawing that uses named print style tables (.stb files).
  2. Type convertpstyles, and then press Enter.
  3. If you are sure you want to convert the drawing and lose all print style assignments, click OK in the prompt that displays.

    If you do not want to lose the print style assignments, click Cancel.


NOTE Converting a drawing to use color-dependent print style tables will remove all of the named print style information from entities and layers. However, the named print style tables are not deleted from your computer.
