Q - question

Loading Page setups from a template drawing.

A - answer You may want to quickly load a set of predefined page setups from a template (standard) drawing file (DWG or DWT). Use the following LISP code to define the PStps command and then run this command to load the standard setups.
(defun C:PStps ()
 (command "._-PSETUPIN" "my_plot_configurations.dwg" "*")
)
Alternatively, you can also just assign this code to a menu macro or a tool palette:
._-PSETUPIN s:/templates/company_standards.dwt *
You can use multi-pagesetup.lsp to assign the loaded setup to multiple layouts.
