Printing in Black on HP LaserJet 4200

Postby willa » Mon Sep 20, 2004 12:07 pm

When I print various line types they are printed as shades of grey. Certain shades are too faint.

How do get to print all the lines in black?

Willa,

There is a description file that you can edit change pen colors, thickness, etc. If you are using softpens its trying to greyscale it for you. Are you using superprint or the print button? What version do you have?

Don.

Sorry so long to reply.
Medusa version 2001i. The "print" item is used on the file menu.
If I start with a blank sheet, i.e. no master. Then the lines print out perfectly, but as soon I load a drawing created on a previous version of Medusa it prints them in shades of grey.
