I am using VC Premium ( current release 11.21 - 64Bit ).

In #Tools #BatchConversion there is an option
"Use Pen Control" where a PenControlFile can be defined.

I can not figure out how to create one interactively nor can I find an example file *.vpc

How can I create such a file ? ViewCompanionBatchConversionDialog.png

Hi,

This option is only for compatibility, it is no longer possible to create new pen control files with ViewCompanion.
In version 12 we will also remove the option completely.

This control file made it possible to hide certain pens in the original HPGL file.
If you need this option we may be able to extend the pen table settings with a new option to hide a pen.

Would this be something you could use instead of pen control files?

Best regards,
Support

I was just exploring the software. For the time being I do not have a use case for that.
However, yes - this could be used for that.
