Hello Guys, I'm using Autocad2009 and i'm very new to autocad. I have a drawing with me, which when opened shows in the model view with proer colors. but once i got for the plotting, it's plotted as B&W.

I tried to apply the plot style table to 'Screening 100%.ctb' but no use?

i would appreciate if someone could help me with this.

Set the particular colour you want plotted in your .ctb file.

Go to your Plot dialogue window, and in the upper RHS corner under Plot Style Table, select the plot style you want...then hit the button to the right (Edit). Then set the pen you want to plot in colour as shown in the image below.

Hi Allan,
Thanks for the quick reply, but the problem is i have multiple colors in the drawing.. and as i didn't draw it myslef and infact got it from someone, how can i set specific colors?

All I could suggest is to pick the entity you want plotted in colour and note the acad color for that entity (from quick properties or from LIST), then modify your .ctb file using the Plot Style Table Editor as described and shown above.

Remove the CTB file and plot with NONE.
