    Printing in color

    John Sutherland

      SW 2009 allows me to place colored sketch elements on a drawing, but when I print the drawing those elements are black.


      Is that all there is?

          Hi John


          If you open the "Print" dialogue box and then the "Page Set Up" dialogue box, check that "Color / Gray Scale" is selected, ok any changes you have made. Your drawings will now print in full colour.

              Thanks Tim for advising that it works for you.


              I looked further into the dialogs and found two different paths for printing drawings:


              1)     File>Print>Properties>Select color: Auto color OR Grey scale>Print


                        Auto color prints all black.


              2)     File>Print>Page setup>Drawing color: Automatic OR Color/Grey scale OR B&W>Print


                        Color/Grey scale prints color in color.


              Quirky, but this is SW.
