Plotting in AutoCAD 14

by Larry Stenzel
(Machesney Park, IL, USA)

I just got a different computer and installed AutoCAD 14, which is what we use here.

When I plot, red and magenta lines print as black lines but all the others print as gray lines.

I have compared the settings on my computer to other computers and can't find any difference, but obviously something is different.

I've looked in Help and in my old book and can't find this particular problem mentioned anywhere. Can anyone help me?

Plot setting files in AutoCAD
by: Frank

Go into your old computer.

In the AutoCAD support directory, copy over any pcp and pc2 files into the same directory on your new computer.

Then check to be sure the path in your new computer is pointing at these plot setting files.
