plotting drill holes

My plotter MP1800 doesn't plot the drill holes on either piece plot or marker plot.

    Did you define your drill hole size and type in Annotation Editor? You have to define them for the label type and use that annotation table when you plot the piece or marker.

    In AccuMark Explorer, look for data type "Annotation".

    In Annotation table, you can define how and what data the plotter plot out.

    Internal Label D is usually assigned for drills (unless overrode by user)
    "SY" = symbol
    "74" = "+"
    "25" = our factory uses imperial, that is 0.25"
    A list of symbols can be found in the "Data Management and Output User's Guide" installed in the Documentation folder.

    To override annotation on existing markers, at Marker Plot, scroll to the far right to select new Annotation table.
    (Existing markers do not update themselves after Annotation table is changed, they must be regenerate to reflect changes made.)
