Plotting in color

Plotting in color

Plotting in color

I'm using Microstation 7 and I'm having trouble plotting in color (I'm new to this program).  The preview is black and white and so is the printout, even though I have color printing selected.  Is there something I'm missing?



RE: Plotting in color

  Nevermind folks, I figured this one out.  :)

RE: Plotting in color

Just  a little point of forum etiquette.
One should never in a forum say "..never mind I figured it out.." as somebody else may have a similar problem and has not yet figured it out and your not letting them in on how you solved it... epecially when you have it posted for quite a while then reply to your own post  never mind..

RE: Plotting in color


Good point, thank you.

Well, it turns out that I had to change the plotter driver.  The one I ended up using successfully to print in color was pscriptc.plt, although there were a few that seemed to work - some with better resolution and colors than others.
