    Default Color prints in Monochrome?

    What setting(s) has to be changed to get all colors to print black in monochrome? Thanks

    Do you just want a basic plot? When I do, I use the OOTB "monochrome.ctb" plot style table. Beyond that, you would need to customize a plot style table to assign print colors & lineweights to different colors. I recommend reading up on "plot style tables" and "CTB vs STB".

    Thank you for your reply. The first thing I checked was that all of the colors that are listed in the Plot Style Table Editor for monochrome (OOTB) that they all plot black. They are and it still plot?prints some colors.

    Do you have anything in a Truecolor colour? Use only the standard acad colours to be able to plot in mono.
