I am using Autocad Map 2005 and sometime within the last month or two, my plotting settings have changed unbeknowst to me. I sent plot files to the printer with a third party spooler and, in the past, it would not start printing until the whole file had finished being spooled to the printer. Now the printing starts immediately and I DO NOT have that option checked in my printer properties dialog box. I have it set to spool for faster printing and not to start until the last page is completed spooling. I am ready to pull my hair out. It is not uncommon for me to send 10+ very large print files to the plotter at one time and let them print overnight. With it printing immediately, it is trying to process more than one at a time and it is blowing my printers memory. I am printing to a HP Designjet 755. I am absolutely certain that this is specific to my computer as others are not having this problem but I have been unable to find the solution. I am thinking that it may be possible that a Windows update might have caused this? Please help is you have run into this problem. Thanks!
