Welcome to ZWCAD forum.
Converting stb to ctb plot style:
Step 1. open the drawing base with stb plot style
Step 2. Input command CONVERTPSTYLES on the command line, browse a STB file then save it to CTB file.


Converting ctb to stb plot style:
Step 1. Open the ctb based drawing.
Step 2. Input command CONVERTCTB on the command line, browse a ctb file then save it to ctb file.

CTB is short for color based plot tables, STB is short for style based plot tables, they are both plot style that can be use for printing in ZWCAD and AutoCAD. Plot style is a general property that can be assigned to an object or a layer in the STB "flavored" DWG file.
An object can also inherit this property from a layer much like color, linetype or lineweight when set to ByLayer.
