On the "Plot Device" tab, there should be a drop down box labeled with
the option for PLOT STYLE TABLE. Here you would want to select
MONOCHROME.CTB and that will print everything one solid black and white.

I tried changing my plot style table but I don't get any options to select except for "none". I have changed the path in the "Tools/Options" box for the plot style table search path to the correct directory contain all our standards. This same directory is used by all the mechanical designers using AutoCAD 2004. It works for them, but not for me. I still have AutoCAD 2000 and Mechanical Desktop 4 installed.
My other drawing must have been corrupt or something, now I have the option for plot styles except the monochrome doesn't show up. The other problem I am having is that my plot fades from dark to light at the top to the bottom.
