Visual Styles affect my plot style

I am producing A4 preliminary room data sheets & want to use a visual style to print them out with a hand drawn style finish.
But when I give the viewport a visual style the plot style of the viewport changes & I cannot seem to print the layout in monochrome, like I am used to.

Visual Styles are not affected by Plot Styles. You have to make the
adjustments in the Visual Styles themselves (Monochrome, etc).

Thanks for the reply Alex.
I cannot seem to find the control where to find the monochrome style adjustment.
I open up the visual style pallette but cannot see where there is an adjustment where I can even find a mention of monochrome.

I think the OP means/wants the opposite... .

There's a control to set the Face Style to Tint, Monochrome, etc. It will
only work if you have Faces available, so it won't work if you're only
displaying edges.

Thanks again Alex but it still is not happening.
The drawings I want to produce are just internal elevations of rooms in the model, made with the internal elevation tool: just 2d simple elevations. I got to the monochrome setting you showed me, but that is in the material side of things, it does not seem to work for my linework, my plot preview still comes up coloured & very pixilated.
I have four 1:50 elev layouts & 1 location layout on my A4 sheets & am I trying with one to produce a sketch layout.
I just want to produce a sketch type of A4 sheet.
I have tried to do it with the napkin setting, but that blows out the file size.
It is not that important but, as we are at the preliminary design stage with the client, it is good to give them sketchy types of drawings.
Because when they get precise prints they think that the room is set in concrete & they panic a little, they think the builder will get these drawings & build the thing.
I want to produce a sketch for their & their staff's comment.

Hi,

As I said, the Monochrome effect only applies to Faces, not edges. Your
drawing is 2D -> you're applying a 3D visual style with edges only, so
there's no way to achieve what you want to do. You can override edge colors
in the visual style, but you can't make them monochrome as you can with
faces.
