Can you plot a drawing without actually opening it?

Thanks, TT

Plotting

Maybe a stupid question but here goes: How does one get to the print/plot pen mapping file ?

Plotting

Check for a config.pro option called "pen_table_file". Also look in the folder specified by the config.pro option "pro_plot_config_dir". If configured, the plotter configuration files (.pcf) may also refer to their own pen table files. If neither of these are configured, then look in your startup working directory.

By the way, both the pen table files and plotter config files are plain text and can be viewed/edited in any text editor (like notepad).
