Color to Grayscale?

209 Views, 4 Replies
05-02-2013 07:10 AM

Greetings,

 

Is there a way to convert the entire drawing to grayscale (not, black/white, but take the colors per layer and give them an appropriate grayscale color)?

 

This is NOT for plotting so checking the grayscale check box or selecting the plot style table is not what I am looking for.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Btw, I am using 2006.

1. Change the layer colors (assuming the objects are set to BYLAYER).
OR
2. Change to object colors themselves.

Your choice.

Not what I am looking for.  I am looking for a gray scal equivillant converter type of thing.

Thingees not available.

Change everything to 8 or 9 (251,252, 253, 254,255) and then manipulate the Transparency perhaps?
