Print settings

Recommended Posts

Is there no way to set the print settings (in the drawing sheet would make sense) so that the print dialog is always correct for a particular layout file? I must be missing something simple...

Yes, sorry the meaningful description of the issue.

dialog settings, like what? Landscape, Printer Name, CollateCopies, DoubleSided, PaperOrientation, Watermark, Range, Scale, Print in Color...

Fair enough. When I switch from a layout using Arch D sheets to 8.5x11 for a brochure I need to change the 

  1. DPI
  2. Paper orientation
  3. paper size
  4. print source

It would be convenient to be able to save a named Printer Profile so that selecting a profile would fill in the dialog.

I can't be the only one who'd like to save that time changing printer settings each time I use a different layout page. Seems like low hanging fruit, which is why I was wondering if I was just missing something obvious. HOLD ON...it would appear as though the EXPORT PDF may help here!!! I'll dig deeper.

Export PDF tool helps with most of these except DPI apparently. It keeps coming up at 600, even after previous use at 300. The Print tool, however, remembers the last used DPI setting. Both different, both not helpful! They need to remember a DPI setting for that particular page setup.
