Print Patterns at Onscreen Resolution

Question

This box seems to be checked by default in VW12.5 both for new files and for files converted from VW11.5. (It is in the Vectorworks options of the Print dialog). For prints to look the same as in previous versions the box must be unchecked.

Is there any way to change the default? Unchecking the box is ok, but as far as I can tell it must be done for every sheet layer in every file.

You should only need this box checked if you are printing patterns.

What are you seeing different between the files when you print with the option on and off?

Hi Katie,

We use patterns in a lot of our drawings - mostly we use simple "checkerboard" patterns for shadows and to denote floor areas.

In an example I just printed there is a simple green and white checkerboard pattern.

When the option is off the printed output is very similar to VW11 - there is a light green shaded area.

When the option is turned on the pattern prints very coarse. There is a white backgound with solid green circles.
