Turning off colors in plotting

52 Views, 3 Replies

We currently use ACAD2000 on NT 4.0 and have a third party electircal cad package we use to export to Autocad. This export is in multiple colors, all on one layer. There is one color we don't want to plot, and moving that to another layer is not an option. I have tried to look at CTB vs STB instructions, but come up confused. Is there a way to turn off plotting for a single color?

In your Plot Style definition that you use, either CTB or STB,
set screening to 0 for that color, as well as have the Pen Number
and Virtual Number the same as the color number.

Now, if you are looking for help on how to set up plot styles,
and which version to use, you need to do either type HELP in
AutoCAD and read about it, or browse this newsgroup for tips.
