Using animation lab to print paper space
Read 681 times

Because animation lab already has a scripting engine, it is probably very handy for other automated tasks like automating the printing of a whole bunch of paperspaces one after the other.

Just finding the sdk code that would be required to print a paper space would be all that was required and then each loop would increment the paperspace tab number and print to whatever, especially handy if print to pdf could be selected.


Does anyone know what parameters would be required to select a paperspace and then print.

You can try using the macro recorder to figure that out.
Alternatively  you might post that on the SDK section of the forum.

As for printing multiple paper spaces.  TurboPDF has an option for printing multiple to a single PDF if that is what you are after.

Have you tried the 'Print Queue' found under 'File' pull down? It allows you to select which paper spaces to print. You can also change the order of printing.

Thanks for the feedback Dave and Jason, The print paperspace one is just an example, creating numbered paperspaces automatically is another and there are probably lots of ways the animation lab scripting could be used apart from animation.

I have posted it in the SDK section also.
