Do you guys have a problem with setting lines to screen. I have column lines I want screened where they don't show up as well and in my .ctb file I have the following setting:

Color: Black
Dither: On
Grayscale: Off
Pen #: 8
Virtual Pen#: Automatic
Screening: 20
Linetype: Use object
Adaptive: Off
Lineweight: 0.0080
Line end: Use Object
Line join: Use object
Fill Style: Use object

Now with this, can anyone tell me why these lines are not screening. We have not changed anything on the plotter since swapping from R14 (which worked properly) to 2002. The plotter is set to get pen settings from software not a plotter pallette. The only thing we did is went from a plot server (computer) to a jet direct print server.

Any ideas? I'd appreciate any help on this. I'm about to pull my damn hair out.

BTW, they show up screened in the plot Full Preview

Oh yea, here is a screen shot of the print preview

As you can see the eiling grid and walls sort of fade out so the lights will stand out.

Ignore the above, it must be one of our drivers because the drawings printed okay on another printer.
