I am using Map 5

When I go to paper space to plot my layout all the drawing is black. When I
plot, everythings plots fine but on the screen everything is black. If I
remake the layout all the layer colors show properly. This just started to
happen.

thanks

Is it possible that your viewport has had some specs attached to it? Does it help to erase the viewport and then create another 'clean' one?

That is all I can think of at the moment.

Check in the page setup/plot dialog and see if Display by Plotstyles is
checked.

Try typing ps when it is all black to return to paperspace.

I am guessing that you are doubleclicking on the viewport border and
inadvertently issuing the command vpmax.
