DraftSight printing

DraftSight printing

DraftSight printing

After I updated DraftSight all the print images are in light grey lines. I tried everything possible (including toner save mode). This was never a problem with the previous version. Anybody would be able to help me?

RE: DraftSight printing

Check the layer colours.

Check the printer setting for "Print Black & White" or something similar. (ie; Not Greyscale or Colour)

RE: DraftSight printing

nnbk: Thanks for response. I am not sure what you're after. All I do when exporting to pdf I have markers at the four corners of my drawing sheet and reduce my drawing to leave a certain border (required by USPTO). That way I prevent pdf to extend the drawing by preserving a border or frame.
