- Part Two
You can enter
note that you want included in the text file that is created as
a transmittal. The notes you type in will be added to the
transmittal under a "Notes:" heading. You have to type it
into this little box to be included. You have to type it
in each time. If you want the same thing to be added to
multiple transmittals you may want to make a notes file.
this auto-transmittal text, use Notepad or equivalent text
editor and create a file that will be saved to one of AutoCAD's
search paths and be named "etransmit.txt". The name and file
extension are critical - don't get them wrong. The location is
not as critical but it has to be in a folder where AutoCAD is
likely to look. You may want to keep these individual files in
the same place as the file you are eTransmitting. The first one
it finds is the one that is used. You could use this file for
location for this file would be in AutoCAD's Support directory
but you can also put it on a Server so everyone automatically
gets the same file. You can also keep separate auto-transmittal
notes with project drawings so long as the file is in the same
source folder as the current drawing being transmitted.

Transmittal Setting file
Transmittal Settings are stored in drawing file and the
Registry. There is no easy way to share these among users.
If you know one - let me know.
Transmittal Package Type
specifies the type of transmittal package created. ZIP, EXE or
Folders. ZIP and EXE will create files that contain the
complete transmittal. Choosing "Folder" will create a
folder on your hard drive to store the individual files copied
file format to which the drawings included in a transmittal
package will be converted. You can select an AutoCAD drawing
file format from the drop-down list. Hey - what happened
to AutoCAD 14 format?
Transmittal File Folder
location in which the transmittal package is created. Lists the
last nine locations where you created packages. To specify a new
location, click Browse and navigate to the location you want.
If the folder does not exist – it will be created.
If this field
is left blank, the transmittal file is created in the folder
containing the first specified drawing file. In a sheet set
context, the transmittal file is created in the folder
containing the sheet set data (DST) file.
Transmittal File Name
method for naming the transmittal package. Notice that the
displays shows the default file name for the transmittal
package. This option is not available if the transmittal package
type is set to Folder.
File Name if Necessary
logical default file name. If the file name already exists, a
number is added to the end. This number is incremented each time
a new transmittal package is saved.
