Presents a list of currently available plotters for you to select.

Next up is a pair of tips sent in from previous tipster Jeffery Sanders. Select Plotter (Tip #2067) presents a list of currently available plotters for you to select. When one is picked, the name of the plotter (as displayed in the dialog box) is returned. This tip is a utility for LISP programmers and not a command function. The utility consists of two files, SELECTPLOTTER.LSP and SELECTPLOTTER.DCL, both of which you need to place in the standard AutoCAD search path for custom programs. When the function (SelectPlotter) is run inside AutoCAD, a dialog box shows the available plotters for your selection. Nice tip for programmers wanting a peek into the plotter system and other AutoCAD areas that are not often demonstrated
