Converting print style tables

You can convert a color-dependent print style table to a named print style table. You cannot convert a named print style table to a color-dependent print style table because color-dependent tables contain only print styles that are named after the 255 colors to which they map.

Converting a color-dependent print style table to a named print style table can be helpful in the following situations:

  • You don’t want to create a named print style table from scratch.
  • You want to create a named print style table that has the same settings as a color-dependent print style table, but with some new print styles or other custom settings.
  • You want to convert a drawing to use named print style tables and you want to reuse most of print styles already defined in a color-dependent print style table.

To convert a color-dependent print style table to a named print style table

  1. Type convertctb, and then press Enter.
  2. Select the color-dependent print style table (.ctb file) that you want to convert.
  3. Click Open.
  4. Enter a name for the new named print style table (.stb file).
  5. Click Save.

The print styles in the new table are named Style 1, Style 2, and so on. If want to use different print style names, rename the print styles before you assign them to entities and layers in your drawing. If you rename the print styles after assigning them, they will not match when you print your drawing.
