Grey layers not publishing to PDF as grey

Question

Greetings.

is anyone else having issues when they publish to PDF with their 'grey' layers/classes not showing as grey? 

They show as grey on my Vectorworks screen but not on my PDF. Ive attached  a screen shot and a PDF file

What do you have set for the Grey Level for Greyed Layers and Classes? The default it 69% if this got set to 100% then they might not show as grey.

 

There are also a couple of other options about Grey classes hidden in the Options button for export type of PDF.image.thumb.png.87ada5ca4f626563a861d0d4f7813511.png

I think you got it Pat.  Mine was at 69% I set it to 30% and it seems to work.

 

Thanks for that!!!

Thanks for that guys. Unfortunately thats not it. The first 9 pages export fine, then the last 44 export black and white

What happens if you only export pages 10-22? (or something like that)?

 

Trying to figure out if maybe it is a memory issue and perhaps you can export in blocks?

Pat. Is there a way to adjust the gray line settings on the Publish feature? As there is with individual sheet exports?

In the Publish dialogue select the sheets and hit Options...

You need to select the sheets. See my screen shot they are blue.

No worries. That dialogue is not very intuitive to say the least. I remember coming across the same confusion with it.
