Customizing progeCAD - Setting and changing options

Changing the options on the Printing tab

In the Options dialog box, on the Printing tab, you can determine several printing settings, including headers, footers, and print style tables.

Creating headers and footers You can include header and footer information such as a date and time stamp, your name and company name, or other information that you want to appear at the top or bottom of printed drawings. Header and footer settings are set globally for all drawings.

Specifying print style settings Print styles change the appearance of your printed drawing without modifying the actual entities in your drawing. Use the Printing tab to specify initial print style settings for new drawings created without a template and for older drawings when opened (older drawings that were created before print styles were available, for example, before AutoCAD 2000). Drawings that are already open are not affected.

For more details about print styles and print style tables, See Using print styles.
