Saving CTB Files to the Plot Style Manager

If you have an existing CTB (.ctb) plotting file, you'll need to save it to the CAD Plot Style Manager (also known as uploading a CTB file) before you can use it.

Looking for information on creating or editing CTB plot styles? See our documentation on:

Learn more about CTB plot styles by watching our Plotting in Style: CTB & STB Files Explained webinar.

First, back up your CTB file to the folder of your choice.



We recommend storing your CTB files in the Admin subfolder within your LandFX folder.





This subfolder also contains the Land F/X CTB files.

Or select the Plot Style Manager option from the File menu.




Copy your CTB file from the backed-up location (such as the LandFX/Administration folder) into the Plot Style Manager.
