Click to view contentI can't find any mention of this Plug-in except for people asking about it.   DEFINITELY don't want any cloud B.S. on my computer, I could get in pretty deep trouble if any of my models end up on someone else's servers...

Did SW ever add a printer calibration capability? I know one can calibrate a laser printer ouptut in ACAD, but I have never been able to find out how to do it in SW.  When I need precise output I end up exporting to dxf and then printing from calibrated Acad, but that is so time consuming, and we shouldn't have to do that. Thanks.

I've been challenged with the following:   49 folders that each need their own serial numbering scheme. The numbering is the same, a 3 digit counter value. But each folder needs its own unique counter. Example: (Folder) A320-44      A320-44-001.doc      A320-44-002.doc      A320-44-003.doc (next number would be -004)   (Folder) E195-25… (Show more)
