HP-GL Driver Custom Properties Dialog Box
Specifies custom properties for plotted HP-GL (PLT) files.
List of Options
The following options are displayed.
Specifies the settings for long axis plotting.
Long plotting controls long axis plotting. If you are performing long axis plotting,
you need to install a black pen in stall 8 in order to print registration marks at
the edge of the paper. The marks at the edge of the paper represent the end of each
frame in a long plot.
- Do Not Warn at Plot Time
Disables the display of the Long Plot Warning dialog box at plot time. The warning
message alerts you that you’ve selected a long plot paper size and provides further
information about long plots.
- Pause Between Frames
Causes the program to pause between frames when performing a long plot. The pause
provides time for the ink to dry before the next frame is plotted.
- Seconds to Pause Between Frames
Specifies the amount of time to pause between frames of a long plot.
Request Hard Clip Limits From Plotter
Specifies the use of hard clip limits.
The 7580, 7585, 7586, DraftPro DXL/EXL, DraftMaster I, 7586B, and 7596A plotters return
hard clip limits to the program. This requires two-way communication between the program
and the plotter. The plotter sends the program the installed paper’s exact plot area,
the plot is positioned on the paper based on the actual sheet size. If you clear the
Request for Hard Clip Limits from Plotter checkbox in the HP-GL Driver Custom Properties
dialog box, the plot is positioned based on the configured paper size. In most cases,
you need to adjust the configured paper size to reflect the actual printable area
of the device. Otherwise, your plot might be clipped. You can adjust the location
of the plot on the paper by changing the plot origin.
Use Simplified HPGL
Specifies the use of a simplified version of the HPGL language for use with devices
that do not support the full version of the HPGL language.
You can use this option to produce verbose but simplified HPGL for use by non-HP
devices that don’t support the full HPGL language. Plot files become larger when this
option is selected because every HPGL instruction will be terminated and every new
coordinate pair will cause a fresh command to be emitted. Also, the HPGL RO instruction
is not produced.
Handshaking Instructions for Network Plotting and Plot to File
Specifies the type of handshaking used for plotting across a network or to a file.
Handshaking Instructions specifies the method of handshaking for plotting across a
network or to a file. When plotting across the network or to a file, you need to specify
the type of handshaking so the HP-GL/2 driver can send the correct instructions to
the plotter. If you are plotting to a locally configured plotter, use the handshaking
controls on the Ports tab in the Plotter Configuration Editor.
- Use XON and XOFF Handshaking
Sends HP-GL/2 instructions over the network or to the file to use XON and XOFF handshaking.
- Use Hardware Handshaking
Sends HP-GL/2 instructions over the network or to the file to use hardware handshaking.
