Q - question

Batch-print multiple layouts in AutoCAD LT 2008.

A - answer AutoCAD LT 2008 by default does not allow to batch print multiple layouts (multiple drawings) in one go - only to publish them to DWF.

The PUBLISH command (File > Publish...) starts a dialog where the option "Plotter named in page setup" is missing and you can only use the DWF output.

But another method of the Publish function does not have this limitation. First select (Shift+mouse on the tabs) several layouts to print, right-click on them and choose "Publish selected Layouts" from the context menu. In this case, the missing button (option) is shown in the publish dialog and so you can plot also directly to your plotter.
