Plotting Xrefs to PDF in B&W

Hi Everyone!

 

We setup a company template to use STB. Not trying to debate if its the right move, we simply did it because the designers grasped the concept of Named Styles rather than color styles.

 

Here is our setup.

AutoCAD 13 on Windows 7 with Adobe PDF or DWG to PDF

 

We have an xref'ed drawing of a background. We xref it on Layer XXX_BKGRD with a color of yellow and a Plot Style of Background.

 

In our STB file we have style named Background set to plot Black. We have Plot object lineweights and plot with plot styles selected. The VP is set to Legacy Hidden.

 

When we do a plot preview, its all color. No change.

 

Help!!!!!

Hi!


This sounds like a Visual Styles setting. Can you post a sample of your files? The host and one external reference and the stb should do. Be sure to remove any confidential data.

 

Cheers!

Thanks for replying. We determined that there were a few layer issues that the designers were unaware of. We have since corrected it and everything is rolling ahead smoothly.

 

Thanks again.
