About Setting the Timeout Value for Devices

Some plotters support a timeout value, which specifies how much time elapses while
the plotter empties its buffer before more data is sent to the plotter.

After the plotter empties its buffer, it accepts more data. Enter the amount of time
you want to elapse before it prompts you to abort the plot. If your drawings are complex
or your pen speed is very slow, set the timeout value higher than the default (30
seconds). If you begin to receive numerous timeout messages, your timeout setting
is probably too low.

For plotters that support a timeout value, you can also set the timeout value by clicking
Configure Port on the Ports page during the initial configuration in the Add-a-Plotter
wizard or after a plot configuration (PC3) file is created.
