Follow these steps to set up batch plotting in ProjectWise:
Printer - Select the printer driver from the ProjectWise Vault (step 5). The driver should have the <default_outfile/auto_overwrite> set to the plotting device you are using.
default_outfile/auto_overwrite = "lpt1"
default_outfile/auto_overwrite = "Printer Name"
Plot Area - Lets you set the Plot Boundary to View, Shape, or Cell. You can also tell BatchPlot to search the master file or reference file for the plot boundary specified.
Layout - Used to describe how BatchPlot determines the size and position of each plot. For more information see the MicroStation documentation.
Display - Contains options for controlling how the elements plot. Display also lets you assign a pen table to control and/or enhance the plotter output. For detailed information on creating pen tables see the MicroStation documentation. The pen table must be selected from a ProjectWise Vault (step 5).
Notes:If the plots are not generated at the plotter check the batchplt.log file for any errors. By default the log file is saved in C:\Bentley\Workspace\projects\examples\generic\out\.
