I have been away from blogosphere for a short while (a period of almost 9 months ...!!). I don't know how I could stay away from the CADD world for such a long time. It was really painful not getting updated with the latest CADD info, but at the same time had a very sweet and memorable time spent with my family back home. Now feel pretty happy to be back in the role of a CAD Admin, a job I had been longing for a long time.
Two weeks ago, one of my friends emailed me seeking an easier way to plot with previous page setup without opening the plot dialog. I was lucky to have successfully tried the following macro in AutoCAD 2005 and AutoCAD 2008 versions.
The most important aspect of this macro is to provide 'Previous Plot' at the page setup name prompt. Keep the macro inside a button or menu. Or else, you can easily convert this macro to create a lisp routine and assign a shortcut for that as shown below.
(defun c:PP()(Command "-Plot" "No" "" "Previous Plot" "" "No" "No" "Yes"))
