A fix for when masked text is blacked out on a Xerox Printer

My printer was printing out masked texted with a black background. This was actually happening to any computer that printed to the printer from AutoCad that was on our network. This is what I did to fix it and it has worked perfectly.

 

AutoCad 2008:

 

  • Go to Plot
  • Click properties with printer selected
  • Click custom properties
  • Click color options
  • Under Automatic-> click the down arrow
  • Switch from automatic to custom
  • Click down arrow under text & graphics
  • Click none

I beleive this works because autocad is looking to at the masked as a white image which it wants to print out black. So if you switch it to custom...it automatically won't switch it.

 

Hope it works for you too!
