I'm using Autocad for Mac 2013 (Mac OS X 10.7.4). I referenced in a drawing and created a layout with viewports, but the information in the reference file is showing up screened back instead of black. I checked the colors and my pen table, and by all indications they should be showing up as black, but are instead gray.
When I plot it looks as it should, but it's very disconcerting that the view on screen is not what I will get when I plot. Yes, I have the "Display plot styles" radio button checked off.
Thanks for this solution! It helped to get me started building a drawing using only xrefs. My problem is that I'd like to have control to screen/ fade each of 10 or so xrefs seperately so they stand out better when printed. Is that possible using another feature?
