Saving to ACAD - Pen Table assignment

Post by Dave Morris » Tue Feb 15, 2005 9:38 am

When saving a drawing to ACAD, something happens to the pen assignment. In ACAD you are unbale to assign the pen table to the drawing. Only way to cure problem, is to insert drawing as a block into a blank opne drawing.

You have to set the variable PSTYLEPOLICY to 1 in MSCAD2004 before you save to a DWG file, to have CTB used in AutoCAD as default.
Setting PSTYLEPOLICY to 0 will set it to use the STB, which is the default as it is shipped.
