    Default Printing Black on Top of Grey

    I've attached 2 images. on_screen.jpg shows how Revit displays the condition on my screen and print.jpg shows how it actually prints. I print greyscale so that I can see these lines as grey but the grey are printing on top of the black lines. Is there anyway to tell these projection lines to be behind the cut lines (which, speaking 3D, they are behind already)?

    Thanks

    You could use the line work tool to (wide line) to highlight the thicker lines.

    The problem isn't that the black line is too thin, it's that the projection line is printing on top of the cut lines. Besides that, the solution of overriding every single cut line in every single view seems a little excessive.

    I've run into that as well.
    I think the trick was to make the screened object over-ridden, transparent. If I remember right, this allows the black line to show "On Top" and thru the screened lines.
    I haven't and to do in to modeled objects in the same model, but I know that works with links.
