Plotting logs

Recommended Posts

I have a lot of wide logs that I need to plot on 42 inch roll paper, but they vary in length. Is there a way to get Log Plot to only use the minimal length of paper when printing? Or would I need to set the page length manually for each log?

Hi Jeremy,

it sounds like you're using a plotter and those require that you set up a custom page size for each different sized plot which is annoying. By using the "Open with Page Dimensions" in the "File" menu and then setting the page size for your plotter you should be able to minimize the amount of paper needed.

Printers with continuous/banner output are a bitmore efficient since you can use a standard page size and only use the number of pages that you need. I don't know why plotters don't have similar capability but they should.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was afraid of that. I have just decided to group my plots accoridng to size. No reason to print 3 feet of paper for a 1 foot long log.
