Poor plot quality

Recommended Posts

My drawings are printing at a draft quality in one drawing - resolution is 300dpi in Document Preferences>Resolution.

Is there any other setting elsewhere that controls this that I may have missed?

(It's not the printer, I've triple checked)

Thanks :)

If printing sheet layers, they have their own resolution setting. Check by editing the layer through the Navigation or Organization Palette.

^ What Benson says.

New sheet layers will be at 72 DPI by default, which is fine for quick screen viewing but no good for a nice plot.

Usually between 150DPI and 300DPI for a sheet layer is fine, any higher and rendered viewports take much longer to complete.

Many thanks all, I knew I had to be missing something.

Is there a way to change the default? Manually going back through all the sheets will take a while, I'd prefer not to have to keep doing it from here to eternity on new sheets.

When you create a new sheet layer, if you have the "edit properties after creation" check box checked, a second dialogue opens up. In that dialogue box is a field for setting the DPI for the sheet.

You can also select all of the sheet layers in the organization window and edit them at once after the fact.
