We have upgraded to a new plotter in our company, and have a problem regarding using the PUBLISH command.
We already have page setups in all of our drawing files, called things such as "A2"
I have set up a button (F6) using script that when you press it, it will import and overwrite the existing page setups, and this works fine.
The problem is however, that it only updates the "named page setups", and not the layout itself, which is apparently using that named setup.
Refer to the attached pictures, and you will see what Im saying (hopefully).
I have also tried using DWG convert to replace the pagesetups, and it does the same thing.
I have also tried re-naming the page setups, and it will still not update the current layouts settings.
Basically, I believe the answer to our problem would be to somehow delete ALL of the page setups including the ones in current use, and then reload the new ones.
OR, to reload the new layouts, and somehow "update" or "apply" it to the layouts in the drawing.
We are using AutoCAD 2010 LT, so I am happy to try any scrpit stuff people might recommend, but unable to run any VBA or lisp.
A script type solution would be best, as we would need to do this to hundreds of drawings.
I hope this all makes sense, it's not the easiest thing to explain lol
