About Setting Options for Plotted Objects
In the Plot, and the Page Setup dialog boxes, you can choose from options that affect
how objects are plotted.
- Shaded Viewport Plotting. Specifies shaded plotting options: As Displayed, Wireframe, or Hidden. The effect
of this setting is reflected in the plot preview, but not in the layout.
- Plot Object Lineweights. Specifies that lineweights assigned to objects and layers are plotted.
- Plot Transparency. Specifies that transparency levels applied to objects and layers are plotted. Plot
Transparency applies to wireframe and hidden plots only. Other visual styles, such
as Realistic, Conceptual, or Shaded will always plot with transparency.
- Plot with Plot Styles. Specifies that the drawing is plotted using plot styles. Selecting this option automatically
plots lineweights. If you do not select this option, objects are plotted with their
assigned properties and not with the plot style overrides.
- Plot Paper Space Last. Specifies that objects in model space are plotted before those in paper space.
- Hide Paperspace Objects. Specifies whether the Hide operation applies to objects in the layout viewport. The
effect of this setting is reflected in the plot preview, but not in the layout.
- Plot Stamp On. Turns on plot stamps and places a plot stamp on a specified corner of each drawing
and can add it to a log file. Plot stamp settings are specified in the Plot Stamp
dialog box, where you can specify the information you want applied to the plot stamp,
such as drawing name, date and time, plot scale, and so on.
- Save Changes to Layout. Saves changes you make in the Plot dialog box to the layout.
