Sketchy visual style viewport doesn't read/apply ctb

Hi community, I have an issue. We want to show a plan in the sketchy visual style mode. I set the viewport in paper space to Sketchy but when in Print/Print Preview the ctb is ignored and I can't have black lines and the solids screening as was supposed to be. What did I haven't noticed? Is it possible what I want or I'm allowed to use ctb's only in the 2d wireframe visual style? I've searched here in the forum, I've got some similar issues but never this specific relation between sketchy visual style and ctb. Thanks for any help. Regards.

  • This is because Sketchy is a rendered visual style. These type of visual styles don't use ctb values and when printed, print out as an image rather than vector. You can adjust the how a rendered style displays by adjusting it's VISUALSTYLE.

  • Should add that the only visual style that uses ctb is 2D Wireframe - because it's not really a Style, but is the 'native' representation of the vector geometry. All the other Styles are rendered derivatives of the geometry, and the style of that rendering is controlled by VISUALSTYLES. That's also why 2D Wireframe is so much more stable, accurate and glitch-free than the others, not to mention fast.

    Took me years of puzzlement before anyone made that clear to me!

    I can't find a command that allows you to access, but with the paperspace viewport selected you can change the Shade Plot settings from the Property Bar. This overrides the current visual style of the viewport with the selected style when printed. It also provides some additional options, such as Legacy hidden that will print out a 3d view while respecting ctb settings.

    Sounds useful

  • Very thanks Tom and Jason,
    I've found a thread that relates to it, but I'll study this Shade mode.
