plt error of size

I have a problem with the tracing of the plans. We test to install a manager printing for the invoicing. The selected program is czsolution. Since archicad when we print, the format paper is correct. On the other hand while tracing, it indicates a A4 sheet. Czsolution says to me that comes d' Archicad which makes an error. Is this possible? How to correct?

This is the response of czsolution:
10 Pages_____________1 Page
PLT ---------> Document PlotFlow -------> HPdesignjet

The document PlotFlow change the print job information. We can't control
Document PlotFlow in our software because Document PlotFlow is not our
product.

Please help me.

PlotFlow is part of the ArchiCAD package if that is what you mean.

But you can try this: place the PLT file on a Layout as a Drawing and publish the Layout.

My example was not the best. I used Plotflow who he is useful on all the computers. But the problem it is Archicad. I do not know what it makes but when it sends the file to be drawn, the information about the format is not correct. I does not mean that it does not print in a good format. It works and it is not the problem. Czsolution gets back information between Windows and the printer to make a listing of the printings. WHEN czsolution gets back an information about a plot resulting from Archicad, the format of paper is not good.
I do not understand why the information is not correct. Why Archicad creates a file with this missing information. How is constituted a file plt (structure)? How can we get back the information on the format of the paper (between Windows-printer)?

Unfortunately, I don't know why this could be.
Maybe you should contact Tech Support.

PlotFlow is a very old utility and is probably not be recording the current print settings for the plots. I have no idea what the workflow or process management is like with Czsolution so there's not much more I can say.

Still looking?
