AutoCad I have both a CTB and STB black and white plot style converted from a previous version of AutoCAD.  I have it set as my default plot stlye and set up in the page manager.  No matter what I do it continues to preview and plot ONLY in color.  HELP!!

Is this a rendered or shaded or non-2D-Plan view?

Try creating a ZIP file with the plot style files inside of it, and then attaching that.

Plot Styles are only applied when the Visual Style is set to 2D Wireframe.  Type VSCURRENT at the Command: prompt.  Is 2dwireframe the default value?

 

Command: VSCURRENT
Enter an option [2dwireframe/3dwireframe/3dHidden/Realistic/Conceptual/Other] 
<2dwireframe>:
