Creating an HPGL or HPGL/2 plot file to use
- Select the Plot
option from the File menu.
When the Plot dialog box appears (see
Figure 3), select an HPGL or HPGL/2
print driver. In this case, we choose the HP
DesignJet 750C plotter driver, but any HPGL
or HPGL/2 print driver should do.
NOTE: To see how to add an
HPGL or HPGL/2 print driver to your system,

or HPGL/2 Print Driver.

- Select the Plot to file option.
- Any other changes you make to your print
setup will effect the resulting plot file. In
this example, we chose the scale to Fit to paper
and used the Grayscale plot style table.
NOTE: If you plot file appears upside down when
you open it in Squiggle, you'll want set your
plot settings to Plot upside-down.
