line weights

Question

We have an HP DesignJet 800ps. Using os X v11. Our line weights seem to be very light. i.e. black (darkest) cyan (very light). when printing we select "turn of color" from the print menu. (this seems to not matter, color or b&w). When turning on the black and white (from file menu) the print is draker but you lose the line weights. Is this a printer issue or vectorworks issue. can someone help us. Oh, yes we have ink....

My office has the HP DJ800ps, and I'm running OS10.3.4. I've never tried turning off the color from the print menu (in fact, I don't know where that option even is). I suspect it makes the plotter print in grayscale, so it's not actually that the lineweights are off, but that they're gray.

But setting "File>Preferences>Document Preferences>Black and White Only" gives perfect results. Have you downloaded the most recent driver for the plotter?
