I use a HP 500 plotter with this .pc3 file: HP Designjet 500 42_HPGL2 Card.pc3. I have not completely transitioned from AutoCAD to Bricscad and still have AutoCAD set up on my old computer. I print on two sizes of paper - 24 X 36 and 30 X 42. Using Bricscad, I am unable to print to this plotter with the correct orientation in the 24 X 36 sheet size.
Please see attached files. The PDF file illustrates the problem. With AutoCAD, I can print a 24 X 36 sheet in the correct orientation using the full 36 inches of paper and 24" of the roll vertically. In Bricscad, the program insists on printing the sheet vertically, thereby wasting 12" of paper each time and requiring the paper to be trimmed. The next two files illustrate the print dialog boxes in AutoCAD and Bricscad. If you look carefully at the paper sizes, you will see AutoCAD offers two paper sizes-Oversize Arch D -portrait and landscape. Bricscad only offers one Oversize Arch D paper size- no distinction between portrait and landscape. Both programs are using the same exact .pc3 file. The preview in Bricscad is the last file I've included which seems to indicate I'll get the desired print result but the orientation is rotated when printing occurs.
I have tried every trick I can think of to get Bricscad to print in the desired orientation with no success. It prints as shown in the pdf file every time. Obviously, this is not going to work for me.
Would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.
