All lines white, what happened?

One of our users has  drawing she has been working on for a few days without inciden, this morning she plots the drawing and all geometry on the drawing displays as white now. When I list items they show as color by layer and layers have assigned colors to them.  The drawing plots correctly, based on the color of the line.  The problem is everything displays white. I've recieved drawings from our subs where the lines display all white but I've never had one turn white on me. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

start command _PAGESETUP ==> modify (for your current layout or modelspace) and within this dialog look to:

have you set a CTB or STB that is something like monochrome?

  • have you checked "Display plot styles"?
  • If so, either remove the checkmark or use another CTB/STB.
