    Default Formatting text in a named style drawing

    I've had to switch to STB plotting due to a client's requirements but can't figure out how to format MText and Tables. With CTB plotting, I could easily change the color of selected text or by Cell style. I can't figure out any way to do that with Named Styles.
    This is such an obvious use-case, I can't imagine it's not possible.

    What are you actually attempting to accomplish?
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    The out of the box installed Autodesk-Color.stb has 9 shades of gray as well as the option to plot with object color but you need to be using your client's STB file.
    Converting from one STB to another isn't an easy task as unlike colors all the Plot Style names in one STB file can be different in another STB file and the one we use from Florida Dept. of Transportation has only 5 total Plot Styles.
    Double-clicking will open any Plot Style STB or CTB, should be easy enough to understand but if you attach it we can step you through it.
    All the ones I've seen have a style for Black & White and another for plotting with object color.
