Lack of transparency with HP500PS printer

Peter Phillips


I have an HP500ps printer (I was probably ill advised to get the postscript version), with Vectorworks 9.5 and OS 9.1 and Hp's RIP driver, but it won't print overlay layers transparently - its prints them as solid. Is there any way of overcoming this? Also it print grey tint as a solid blue colour.

I use the 'Normal CAD' setting because its not too slow.

I have just noticed a specifically Vectorworks sub-dialogue box in the main printer dialogue box that offers four options which includes the following:

"Enable special processing for transparent color bitmaps. (Uses slowere printing techniques for printers that do not support transparency internall, such as postscript)".

I tried this and it didn't make any difference. Can Nemetschek give any advice on this please? I'm desperate to solve this problem.
