    if i'm printing B&W and using Vector Processing, then halftone text (ie - room tags) linked into my MEP model will be print as solid black, how to solve it? thanks.

    Create a new text type with a greyscale color (100-100-100).

      text already in greycolor (128,128,128), is (100,100,100) magic number?

        You have to print grayscale or color to get gray tones. revit's print B&W is exactly that black or white, no grays.

          i tried print grayscale but turned out everything is printed in color, do i missed something here?

          seems print B&W is OK for all halftoned or greyed stuff except text, any magic for these text guys? i use Revit default Arial.

            Anyone find a solution to this? I currently have a request for halftone text, and it keeps printing black.

              Make the text type color (100,100,100) and print in with color not B&W.

                Try creating a PDF first, then plot the PDF (instead of plotting directly from Revit). It might be an issue with the print drivers.

                  It was already set to print color.

                  Originally the user had just used override graphics to make some particular room tags gray, so I then tried making the text in the tags gray (color 100, 100, 100 was too dark; so I used 192, 192, 192), but had the same result.

                  I tried printing both a pdf and directly from Revit with the same result.

                  The user decided to go with a different graphic solution to show the information needed.

                    I had a cover sheet with a grayed out index. I had to be sure I only printed that sheet using Raster and Graytone....the rest were Vector and Black.
