Modify Transmittal Setup Dialog Box

Changes transmittal package settings such as package type, file format, location,
and filename.

List of Options

The following options are displayed.

Transmittal Type and Location

Specifies the type and path to the transmittal package created.

Transmittal Package Type

Specifies the type of transmittal package created.

Transmittal Package Type Description
Folder Creates a transmittal package of uncompressed files in a new or existing folder.
Zip Creates a transmittal package of files as a compressed ZIP file. To restore the files
to the folder location that you specify, you need a decompression utility such as
the shareware application PKZIP or WinZip.

File Format

Specifies the file format to which all drawings included in a transmittal package
will be converted. You can select a drawing file format from the dropdown list.

Maintain Visual Fidelity for Annotative Objects

Specifies whether drawings are saved with scale representations for annotative objects.

Annotative objects can have multiple scale representations. Annotative objects are
decomposed and scale representations are saved to separate layers, which are named
based on their original layer and appended with a number.

Transmittal File Folder

Specifies the location in which the transmittal package is created. To specify a new
location, click Browse and navigate to the location you want.

If this field is left unchanged, the transmittal file is created in the folder containing
the first specified drawing file. In a sheet set context, the transmittal file is
created in the folder containing the sheet set data (DST) file. (Not applicable to
AutoCAD LT.)

Transmittal File Name

Specifies the method for naming the transmittal package. This option is not available
if the transmittal package type is set to Folder.

Transmittal File Type Property Description
Prompt for a File Name Displays a standard file selection dialog box where you can enter the name of the
transmittal package.
Overwrite if Necessary Uses a logical default file name. If the file name already exists, the existing file
is automatically overwritten.
Increment File Name if Necessary Uses a logical default file name. If the file name already exists, a number is added
to the end. This number is incremented each time a new transmittal package is saved.

Path Options

Provides options for organizing the files and folders that are included in the transmittal
package.

Use Organized Folder Structure

Duplicates the folder structure for the files being transmitted. The root folder is
the top-level folder within a hierarchical folder tree.

The following considerations apply:

  • Relative paths remain unchanged. Relative paths outside the source root folder retain
    up to one level of the folder path above them, and are placed in the root folder.

  • Full (absolute) paths within the root folder tree are converted to relative paths.
    Full paths outside the source root folder retain up to one level of the folder path
    above them, and are placed in the root folder.
  • Full paths outside the root folder tree are converted to No Path and are moved to
    the root folder or to a folder within the root folder tree.
  • A Fonts folder is created, if necessary.
  • A PlotCfgs folder is created, if necessary.
  • A SheetSets folder is created to hold all support files for sheet sets, if necessary. The sheet
    set data (DST) file, however, is placed in the root folder. (Not applicable to AutoCAD
    LT.)

This option is not available if the transmittal package is saved to an Internet location.

Source Root Folder

Defines the source root folder for relative paths of drawing-dependent files, such
as xrefs.

The source root folder also contains the sheet set data (DST) file when a sheet set
is transmitted. (Not applicable to AutoCAD LT.)

Place All Files in One Folder

All files are installed to a single, specified target folder when the transmittal
package is installed.

Keep Files and Folders As Is

Preserves the folder structure of all files in the transmittal package, facilitating
ease of installation on another system. This option is not available if the transmittal
package is saved to an Internet location.

Actions

Provides options for organizing the actions that can be associated with the transmittal
package.

Send E-mail with Transmittal

Launches the default system email application when the transmittal package is created
so that you can send an email that includes the transmittal package as an attachment.

Set Default Plotter to ‘None’

Changes the printer/plotter setting in the transmittal package to None. Your local
printer/plotter settings are usually not relevant to the recipient.

Bind External References

Binds all AutoCAD drawing file (DWG) external references to the files to which they
were attached.

Bind

Binds the selected DWG external reference to the current drawing.

Insert

Binds the DWG external reference to the current drawing in a way similar to detaching
and inserting the reference drawing.

Purge Drawings

Performs a purge operation on each of the specified drawings to reduce the file size,
if possible.

NOTE: The purge is done in silent mode, and you will not receive any notifications when
the purged items have been removed.

Remove Design Feed

Removes the association to any design feed data for the specified drawings.

IMPORTANT:It is strongly recommended that you do not make or distribute copies of drawings that
include embedded design feed IDs. Instead, use Autodesk 360 or network permissions
to share and control access to your drawings.

Include Options

Provides a means for including additional options with the transmittal package.

Include Fonts

Includes any associated font files (TTF and SHX) with the transmittal package.

NOTE: Because TrueType fonts are proprietary, you should make sure that the recipient of
the transmittal package also owns the TrueType fonts. If you are not sure whether
the recipient owns the TrueType fonts, clear this option. If any required TrueType
fonts are not available to the recipient, the font specified by the FONTALT system
variable is substituted.

Include Textures from Materials

Includes textures from materials that are attached to objects or faces.

Include Files from Data Links

Adds external files referenced by a data link to the transmittal package.

Include Photometric Web Files

Includes photometric web files that are associated with web lights in the drawing.

Include Unloaded File References

Includes all unloaded external references, images, and underlays. The unloaded file
references are listed in the Files Tree and Files Table and report under their appropriate
category.
