Q - question

Setting pagesetup (printer) for multiple layouts.

A - answer If you want to assign page setup settings (_pagesetup) or reassign a printer for multiple layout tabs, you can use a short LISP utility multi-pagesetup. It can solve the problem of missing -PAGESETUP command and allows to control page setups from a script.

Just load the routine (_APPLOAD command) and run it using:

(multi-pagesetup "mypagesetup" "myprinter")
To assign the setup only to the selected layouts, replace in the code the function (layoutlist) with a list of requested layouts - e.g. '("Layout8" "Layout9" "Layout10") .

For download at multi-pagesetup.lsp.
