hey guys. i need some help. i'm at work right now doing some egress drawings(fire escape routes) for a current project. i'm supposed to plot the drawings black and white, but the escape route has to be red. if i use monochrome, everything is black and white. i don't know how to plot with only 1 color showing. can anybody help me with this? thanks!

Hey. I've got the same problem but I've managed to deal with it in two ways (I'm using AutoCAD, but in ZWCad it should be the same):

1) I'm finishing my drawing & save. Then I'm changing layer colors - those which supposed to be for example red I'm leaving as red, rest I'm changing to black. Than I plot using "color" style of ploting. After that I'm closing drawing without saving.

Of course You can always revert changes by pressing CTRL+Z.

2) I'm creating new plot style in which I choose which colors should be black and which should be different.

Hope I've helped :)

Best regards
