Does MicroStation V8i automatically attach Autocad .ctb, .stb plot style files?
Yes, these files are attached automatically when an Autocad (.dwg) is opened and the Print Menu is activated. To verify this, select File>Print>Settings>Print Preferences>check "Honor Sheet Plot Style Table". By default, any plot style table (CTB or STB file) specified in the sheet definition is automatically attached to the plot. If off, sheet plot style tables are ignored. This is controlled by the MS_PLT_SET_PLOT_STYLE_TABLE_FROM_SHEET configuration variable.
