can I print greys instead of just black?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a way to print in grey, like a screened hatch like in AutoCAD? I get we can change lineweights, but unless I'm printing color, which I don't want to do, I can only do black. There's gotta be a way to make the monochrome print greys too, right? Am I just missing something?

Have you tried this, then use grayscale in your printer setup, you can also turn color off to see what you get.

Perry, I didn't know that function was there. Is that a new feature? I don't remember seeing that in previous versions. Or maybe I just didn't delve deep enough into the preferences. Let me try that and I'll let you know if it helps me.

That feature has been there forever, well at least as long as I have been around. you also need to print in color and set your print driver to greyscale.

This isn't necessary.  I almost always leave Print In Color unchecked and all my drawings are in Grayscale.

unless you want an easy way to print in color, that's what I do. I never print in grayscale. This gives clients their option ,color or greyscale.
