How do I get the plot dialogue box to pop-up in lisp. Right now it is sending the plot command to the command line.

Code: [Select]
(defun c:page (/)

  (command ".-insert" "R:\\AEITITLE\\pagesetups.dwg"
  "0,0" "1"
  "1"                "0"
 )
  (command ".plot")
  (princ)
)
(c:page)

Oh... and drop the final (princ) from the code, it may interfere since you are calling the dialog with initdia. If you send command line calls while a dialog is active it may cause AutoCAD to crash in some instances.
