You can print a succession of layouts in one orientation and then the others in a different orientation.
This is a good point though, @pascal@stevebaer - when printing a range it would be helpful if the spooler could work out what orientation the layout was or at least give the user an option to choose for each tab.
The new PDF printing tools technically has this ability now, but there is no User Interface for it yet. The developer says it can be accessed through scripting if that’s something you can do. If you’re like me, then I’ll wait until there is interface for the controls.
Hi Pascal, I may be misunderstanding, but I cannot for the life of me find the option to print multiple layouts to separate PDFs. I select ‘Multiple Layouts’ and type in my range, but no where can I see an option to save as individual PDFs. It defaults to combining all layouts into one PDF and there’s no alternative. (Rhino6 btw)…
I find this pretty dissapointing such basic thing as publishing is very much underdeveloped in version 7. It is no science to be able to set your options per each layout such as size, dpi, raster/vector, driver and then just hit publish. I am playing around rhino 7 and i cannot comprehend why once “layouts” tab has been implemented other related simple features like described above are not part of it.
Have these scripts got the ability to rotate and scale different pages?
Also, and I think this is a biggy: Can the scripts name the PDF files with the viewport / page tab each has?
Yes indeed this needs to be implemented into the User interface. With controls. So that general drafting printing can be automated for large batches of prints. Regardless of their size or rotation. And as they are named too… we don’t have to worry about print order!? Please push this to get developed now? Batch printing is a basic for making, communicating and building things!
