I have completely lost it with plotting and pen settings!.
I'm trying to set up my own 'Pen Table plotting file' to plot drawings out on to a HP Designjet 1050C. All I wanted to do was change the hidden detail lines to a smaller pattern for better clarification; now the whole pen assignments have gone to pot.
I have decided to start again from scratch and I wondered if anyone could help me with the following questions.
1) If you have specified a pen assignment file e.g. 'table.pnt' in your config or pcf files. Does pro-engineer read the information each time you plot in a session. Will changes you make to the file update pro-engineer or do you have to restart pro-engineer each time.
2) I'm assuming that hidden lines are drawn in pen 3 as standard (grey). I cannot seem to change the size of the dashes. What ever pattern I input nothing changes.
3) I use the same plot settings for a HP Designjet 1050c and a Kyocera FS-1750 laser printer. How come my hidden dashes are different?.
4) In good old Autocad you could change the LTSCALE to alter line font spacing etc. Does the size of the drawing alter the line font spacing?.
