Plotmaker - Can I copy pens between layouts in Plotmakers?

Anonymous
Not applicable
It´s a little boring to assign pen colors to all layouts in Plotmaker, since we don´t use same colors of Archicad. As in each sheet we use a lot of drawings we have to manual edit each color and assign new color and thickness.
QUESTION: It´s possible to copy pen´s assignment between and assign to new drawings, in PLOTMAKER?

Ill appreciate a answer since this is very time consuming.
Regards,
Jay

option click on a drawing corner. Command option click on a corner of the drawing you want to transfer. the pen parameters too. Easy. you didnt say if you are Mac or PC and Im not sure what thecorresponding keystokes are.

we actuall have several PMKs with different pen/color settings along the side of the Master, so they show up in every sheet. People then just match/inject them into their views as they are brought in.

Change your layout pens to one size. ( you can select more than one colour at a time). Then select preferences to use "Layout pens for all" (I'm probably paraphrasing the command)
