How To: Print HPGL2 files that are more than 54 inches in size

Summary

When printing HPGL2 files, they clip at approximately 54 inches. This document details the necessary steps to get around this HPGL2 limitation.

Procedure

By default HPGL2 has a printable size limit of approximately 53.25 inches, hence a file clips when the length is greater than 53.25 inches.

Use the {NOPS | PS} option available with the HPGL2 command to override the maximum page length restriction.

For example:

Code:
Arc: hpgl2 test.gra test.gl2 " " ... ps

Note:
For usage type hpgl2 at an Arc prompt
