So I have what I think is a simple file. a few jpgs, a pdf, and some linework overlayed on each other. Plotting this thing has been a nightmare. I can publish both sheets to pdf, and then plot those from adobe reader, but if I try to plot directly from VW all sorts of unexplained misery ensues. This last attempt took 3 hours and only a portion of the sheet plotted out. What gives? My plotter is a 24" HP Designjet T830. Thanks, Rudy Beuc 100167105_MainFile.vwx
The ability to have any Class or Layer become 'non-plot' would be a welcome addition, instead of only having the one 'NonPlot' class. I often put detailed information or notes inside Symbols or Layers, Reference Grids, etc. that I don't want to print, and when there's only one NonPlot class it gets a bit confusing. Adding to the confusion is the fact that the ‘NonPlot’ class does plot, despite its name. This would be best achieved via a check box on the Classes and Layers tab on the Resource Browser. [2018 Edit: The earliest post I found that requested this functionality dates back to 2009.]
I'm enjoying working with the new version of Plot and Model view, Schematics, but I would be even happier with it if the data was linked both ways. I'm using it where I have a handful of stacked ladder like positions where I keep my 3D true fixtures in their positions relative in space, have one set of schematics for my sheets in relation to the true position as well as a second set of schematics placed elsewhere in my file. If the schematic views could correctly add, delete, number, etc (what my second set of schematics would be for).... that would speed up my workflow instead of trying to find my fixture under a handful of other pipes to delete or adjust. Currently if I delete a fixture on a schematic rigging point it won't delete from the true position, as well as not correct show it's rotation.
