Reusing print settings

After you set up print settings for a drawing or layout, you can save them and reuse them again using printer configuration files.

Printer configuration files store the printer information you create for specific drawings or layouts, which eliminates the need to completely reconfigure your print settings each time you print a drawing. Printer configuration files also allow you to share and reuse print settings between different drawings and layouts.

progeCAD supports the printer configuration (PCP) file format used by AutoCAD. This feature makes it possible to use existing PCP files saved in AutoCAD, as well as to save your progeCAD print configuration settings to a PCP format.


TIP You can convert an AutoCAD PC2 file to PCP format using the Device And Default selection feature in the AutoCAD Print dialog box.


The printer configuration files that you specify can be different for each layout that you create.

To save print settings to a PCP file

  1. If necessary, click the desired Layout tab or the Model tab.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • Choose File > Print.
    • Type print and then press Enter.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.

  4. Specify the desired print settings.
  5. Under Printer Configuration File, click Save.

  6. Name the file, and then click Save.

To assign a PCP file

  1. If necessary, click the desired Layout tab or the Model tab.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Choose File > Print.
    • Type print and then press Enter.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Under Printer Configuration File, click Open.

  5. Locate and select the PCP file, and then click Open.

  6. Select Save Changes to Layout, and then click Apply to save your changes.

PCP files created before progeCAD contain obsolete PenMap/Width settings that you can convert to use with print style tables. Import the PCP file to create a new color-dependent print style table.


TIP It is easy to reuse print settings from the last time you printed. In the Print dialog box under Use Settings, choose Previous Print.
