    Default Slooooooooow Plots

    Using Project Navigator to enable auto-numbering for details and sections, I have created section and detail sheets. Using the NCS guidelines, I can get up to 30 details on a sheet. This means up to 30 viewports, if I am to take advantage of the auto-numbering feature for the details. All that works great....

    UNTIL.... I go to plot. For a 30"x42" sheet with 30 details, the plotting process takes up to 5 minutes, while plotting drawings in the same project with only one viewport is less than 2 seconds.

    Is this a common occurrence, or is there something wrong here?

    Check out this thread. Different version of software, but viewports are essentially an AutoCAD function.

    Are you plotting directly to the plotter or are you going thru a print server?

    We had a similar problem with an HP plotter on our network. Believe it or not, simply defragging the defragging the server resolved our problem
