Black backgrounds

Recommended Posts

You need specify what's broken first.

Hatches should be printing correctly from VW 9 with black background.

Typically to check something like this we need, OS / VW version / Printer / Driver version.

Ukayyy.McOS9.1 thru McOSX.1.5VW 8.5.2 thru 9.5.2 (incl. all releases and betas in between)HP LaserJet 4MV (postscript laser printer) (with an older, then the latest driver)HP DesignJet 500 PS (via MacPlot RIP)

Three situations for testing, all with no background fill in the hatch:1- default hatch, b&w OFF: correct2- coloured hatch lines, b&w OFF: correct3- default hatch, b&w ON: correct4- coloured hatch lines, b&w ON: INCORRECT -> hatch lines are drawn white

Turn ON the background fill,5- coloured hatch lines, b&w ON: INCORRECT -> hatch lines are drawn white

I had this same problem on another computer (the OS9 running 8.5.2, with the older LaserJet driver)

Check if PenFore and PenBack are mixed up in VS, too.
