A quick question for you all.
Is there a way to change your plot page setup in existing drawings without
having to go through them individually.
Here's what I mean. I have about 400 drawings with a page setup 11x17 which
refers to an hp1120 printer. Now we have replaced the hp1120 with an hp9800
printer. Can I somehow change all of my 400 drawings to make the 11x17 page
setup point to the hp9800 printer?
how about outsmarting the software and installing an extra hp9800 (a
real dog---we have one, drivers are atrocious. hp even told us to
install it as a 9600 because it works so badly, but we have it installed
both ways since some software works better as 9600 and others work
better as 9800) and renaming it. Funny thing is that it works here.

I have to agree about the 9800. It takes forever to initialize between
drawings and then the actual print time is pretty slow too, even if you have
it set to it's least quality. Good idea though about fooling the software by
installing an extra driver and calling it hp1120 but we still use the 1120
for a back-up.
The script idea is a good one too, I've written a script which zooms the
drawing to it's limits (just for clean-up sakes) and then modifies or adds
the page setup. I use Scriptpro to add drawings to run the script on. This
works well but takes a little time. A good idea would be to run it at night
when I'm not using my computer.
Here's my script (simple stuff) maybe one of you can use it too with a bit
