Q - question

How to remove unwanted printers and plotters from the PLOT dialog?

A - answer You may want to erase unneccessary items from the list of output devices (various testing and not used printers) in the dialog of the PLOT command. To do this, just delete the respective .PC3 files.

The list of file (the .PC3 efinitions) and the option to delete (or rename) them is available in the Plotter Manager (the PLOTTERMANAGER command), or through the individual .PC3 files in the folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2008\R17.1\enu\Plotters\

or e.g.:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2009\R17.2\enu\Plotters\
