Default Printer when opening drawing with unrecognized printer

AutoCAD Wish List: June 2006 Results is published and one of the wishes was Default Printer when opening drawing with unrecognized printer. I cannot add it to the core of AutoCAD but with the help of this AutoLISP code sample you can easily get this.

If the Plot Device (printer, plotter or PC3 file) saved in the drawing and that will be used when printing does not exist or is set to None automatically set it instead to the default plotter/printer.

If the Plot Style Table saved in the drawing and that will be used when printing does not exist or is set to None automatically set it instead to the default plot style table.

The file can also be changed so that you can set to any printer or plot style table that you want to be used as your standard.

If you want instructions how to automatically load this in AutoCAD take a look here.
