Allows you to submit document files directly to a print queue for a printer or schedule the document files to be sent to the print queue at a later date or at recurring intervals. You can set up batch print jobs for a single document or a select set of documents you select in the Detail View. This command is available when you right-click on a single drawing or a select set of drawings in the Detail View.
The Batch > Print command displays the Schedule Wizard so you can specify whether the drawing should be printed now or at a scheduled date and time. The batch print job runs on a batch server. If the command is not available on the shortcut menu for your documents, batch processing is not configured.
To walk-through the Schedule Wizard and set up batch printing, see Batch Print Schedule Wizard Common Tasks.
To view and manage current batch jobs, see Manage batch jobs.
After setting up the batch print job, the software checks to see if any of the documents are being updated. If so, the software holds the print job until the updates are complete.
As long as a document has a file created for it, you will be able to print the drawing. The software does not check to see if the drawing is up-to-date, out of date, or in an error state.
The Batch Print command is not available for a MicroStation 3D DGN component document file.
The drawing is printed on the default printer of the batch server that processes the print job.
