When you start the Batch Plot command (formerly and still sometimes known as Publish), it will probably populate the sheet list with every layout from every open drawing. (Unless “Automatically load all open drawings” is unchecked, that is.)
But what if that’s not what you wanted? What if you just wanted to publish certain layouts from the current drawing only?
Because this is AutoCAD LT we’re talking about, you have a lot of choices.
First, you could just remove everything from the sheet list except what you need. Not a bad option, unless you find yourself doing it a lot – then it’s an annoyance at best and a waste of time at worst.
Second, you could uncheck the “Automatically load…” button, but you still might have to do some editing of the sheet list. And you also run the risk of the opposite problem of the first option – having to load extra sheets when you want to publish more than one drawing.
One of those two options might work for you, but there’s also a third.
Simply use Shift+select or Ctrl+Select to select the layouts you want to plot, then right-click. In the shortcut menu, you’ll see “Publish Selected Layouts...”
It’s a little hard to tell in that image, but “Building Directory” and “Information Directory” are the only two layouts selected.
When you select that item, the Publish dialog launches, populated only with your selected layouts. No need for any more editing of the sheet list – just publish away!
