autocad 2012 plot Shaded Viewport Options sketchy

Can anyone tell me how to use the "Shaded Viewport Options" in the Plot dialog box? We saw an option for Sketchy in the dropdown menu but I can't find any information about how to use it, or how to change the settings, or even what the intent is for it. When we have selected it and viewed in Preview it shows up as a mass of lines too dense to be usable. 

 

We are using AutoCAD 2012 on a PC in model space.

Check the Visual Styles palette, there's a boatload of settings there.  Most of them are documented in the Help file, and there are pop-ups on the palette (if enabled).  Those and a little experimental testing will hopefully get you close to what you are looking for.

Hi bsdoainvention, welcome to the Autodesk Community!

 

- go to the layout
- select the layout boundary
- type PROPERTIES
- under Misc, Shade plot -> As Displayed
