Plot styles in STB not available in Layer Mgr

I edited Acadlt.stb, adding several plot styles to the default one of Normal.  See attached .jpg.  In the layers manager, the added plot styles are not available to be assigned to layers- only Normal is available- see attached .jpg.  Why is this?

Welcome to the Forums

 

Have you changed your pagesetup to use that style?

Your DWG file must be set to STB and not CTB: this is not a system setting but a per-file setting.
Look up CONVERTPSTYLES command in help after you confirm the file setting.

The drawing is set up to use .stb named plot style tables.  I started the drawing using the Acadlt Named Plot Styles.dwt.  Pstylemode is set to "0:  Uses named plot style tables in the current drawing".

Shaer your DWG plus your STB file please for others to review: use ETRANSMIT and create a ZIP file to post.

AutoCAD LT 2013 for Mac doesn't seem to have Etransmit.  I tried to find the .stb myself, but the path shown under Printer Support File Path / Plot Style Table Search Path doesn't show in Finder.  I tried Search in Finder, looking for acadlt.stb, but it was not found.  I searched for any .stb, and found none.  I hate Macs.

MAC forum is somewhere else, they may be able to trouble-shoot your issue in more detail. This forum is for Windows based users only.
