Hi,
I create a sketch on several layers, with different colors on each layer, and I want to print to an inkjet printer in black and white, with no grayscale or whatelse.. how can I do that ?
I read the help, tried several things with the plot styles options, but can't manage to obtain a simple black and white printing.
sorry, can't find the good way...

why couldn't I delete or at least modify the "normal" style in plot style table editor. if I add my own, how can I be sure mine is used and not the "normal" one with only the "use objet color" selected.
is my "problem" completely somewhere else..?

thanks for your help.
Fred

Hello Ffred,

Monochrome.ctb plots only black color.
Check monochrome.stb is set in the following:
1. Inspector - Plot style table - monochrome.ctb
2. File - Plot - Plot style table - v Color Plot Mode, style is monochrome.ctb

If it doesn't help, make sure that every color has Off graystyle in Plot Style Table Editor
(File - Plot style manager - monochrome.ctb - OK - Form View)

Yes, got it..!
I need to keep checked the "color plot mode" option and choose the "monochome.ctb" plot style table and it's working. :)
was disabling the "color plot mode" option and selecting "monochrome.stb" and it wasn't good...

thanks Hellen_Ch.

Hello,
I have still a problem with plotting in black and white despite the monochrome.ctb is selected (every color has Off graystyle in Plot Style Table Editor). Even on preview I can see all the lines in color. I'm using NanoCAD 5.0.
Thanks in advance for your help.
