class colours not appearing black in viewport and PDF output

Recommended Posts

I'm back into learning vector works and having an issue with colour output. All my colours selected in classes are black in viewports and PDF outputs.

you might have Black and White only set in the preferences for the viewports, or in the settings if you are using Batch Print.

If you give us some more information and some screen shots, we might be able to help more.

There are a couple places in Vectorworks where a black & white setting can be enabled. Maybe one of these is causing your B&W output:

1. Document Prefs>Display tab>B&W

2. On a sheet layer, select a viewport. In the OIP scroll all the way down and click the Advanced Viewport Properties button. Near the bottom is check box for Black and White Only. If this option is enabled, and the viewport is duplicated, the dupes will also have the B&W option enabled.

3. Print setup and the save as PDF offers a B&W option.

Maybe there are other reasons too. I'm not remembering, though.

Thankyou both for your replies in helping me attempt to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, I have checked all settings you suggested but my greyed out tree symbols still prints B/W. Please refer to my snapshots in the following dropbox link:
