    Default Plot Document Name

    In AutoCAD 2004 when we would plot a drawing you would be able to read the file name in the que. Now howver with 2005 we see the whole directory structure as opposed to just the drawing name. (C\cad\2004 projects\abc company\E-111.dwg, as opposed to E-111).

    Is there a setting in 2005 that would allow me to see just the truncated file name?

    Nope. There is no way to turn that clock back.

    If/When you upgrade to 2006 or later, FULLPLOTPATH will do what you are asking.

    Salvation!!!! Autodesk's latest patch addresses this situation (as well as others). Download it, install it, enjoy it.
