Plot Styles

99 Views, 4 Replies

I have a road job that I am trying to create P&P sheets for.  I surveyed it, did auto linework, and created all my proposed objects I need (cross sections, pipes, etc.), and now I need to create P&P sheets. 

 

So, I created my view frames and created all my sheets to a new drawing.  I go to my P&P drawing, adjust where needed, and go to print, but the only problem is that EVERYTHING prints as proposed, none of my existing linework plots existing/grayscale???

 

Why is this happening?  Does this have anythign to do with the fact that all my existing linework is made up of survey figures?

Are you using CTB or STB plot styles?

Have you applied the correct stb to the layout that you're using as your sheet template?

 

Does it help if you use Styles Manager to import your Civil 3D styles into the template file before producing the sheets?

the lines plot correctly if I  re-insert the survey figures into the drawing, but by doing that then I have 2 sets of the same lines???
