Hi, my name is Massimo and I would like know from you about a
boring problem with my pen plotter (Roland DXY 1100).
I have are recently passed to Autocad 2000 coming from Autocad 14,
(Win Xp Pro); now it happens that during the print of any drawing
pens are very often switched over rather than being used, in turn, one
at a time.
I'll try to explain better: when I use Autocad 14, the plotter takes
a pen, which is associated to a color, and it contemporarily prints
all the lines with that color; with Autocad 2000 instead, it almost
changes pen continuously, apparently at random; then the drawing is
completed, but it obviously takes MUCH more time.
The driver that I use is the one downloaded from the Roland web site
and is compatible with Win XP.
In a italian CAD newsgroup someone suggested me to find the option "
order pens" or "optimize pens."
I spent a day to look for it : that option does't exist in ACAD 2000
as well as in the plotter driver.
Thank you all for your help, folks.
