AutoCAD provides the PostScript
However, you need to master the PostScript programming language to take full advantage of AutoCAD PostScript output. Most of this control is
You will also want to know about the Psprolog system variable, which instructs Psout to include your custom prologue statement in its PostScript output. You add your custom prologue to the
file by using a text editor. The prologue should begin with a section heading that you
A complete discussion of Psout PostScript support is beyond the scope of this book. If you are interested in learning more,
You can also add a PostScript plotter to the plotter configuration. When you do this, AutoCAD plots the drawing as a series of vectors, just like any other plotter. If you have any filled areas in your drawing and you are plotting to a PostScript file, the vectors that are used to plot those filled areas can greatly increase plot-file
Next to your computer's CPU, memory has the greatest impact on AutoCAD's speed. How much you have, and how you use it, can make a big difference in whether you finish that rush job on schedule or work late nights trying. This section will clarify some basic points about memory and how AutoCAD uses it.
AutoCAD is a virtual memory system. This means that when your RAM memory resources reach their limit, part of the data stored in RAM is temporarily moved to your hard disk to make more room in RAM. This temporary storage of RAM to your hard disk is called
virtual memory paging.
Through memory paging, AutoCAD will continue to run, even though your work might exceed the capacity of your RAMThe Windows operating system
You will notice that AutoCAD slows down when paging occurs. If this happens frequently, the best thing you can do is add more RAM. But you can also improve the performance of AutoCAD under these conditions by ensuring that you have adequate hard-disk space and that free
If you are not in the habit of emptying your Recycle Bin, you want to get into the habit of doing so. Every file that you "delete" using Windows Explorer is actually passed to the Recycle Bin. You need to clear this out regularly. If you are a regular Internet
