Task Scheduler Print Enhancements

When you schedule batch printing of files with Task Scheduler, you can choose from many of the same settings that are available when you print directly from the SOLIDWORKS software. You can also choose to use a document's saved printer settings for each print task.

  • Page Setup dialog box:

    Provides all settings with the exception of the Preview button and preview functionality.

  • Print dialog box:

    Provides all settings with the exception of:

    • Preview button
    • Current sheet and Current screen image
    • Print to file
    • Line thickness
    • Margins
    • Collate (available through Page Setup)

When you select printer-specific settings in the Print dialog box, the same settings are used for all files in the print job.

Instead of specifying settings for all documents in the task, you can use the print settings that are saved in the documents. To use saved settings, select Use document printer settings. Documents that do not have saved settings use the settings that you specify in the Task Scheduler Print dialog box.

To save printer settings with a document:

  1. In SOLIDWORKS, create the document.
  2. Click File > Print.
  3. Select settings in the Print dialog box and click OK.
  4. After printing, save the document.
