Batch plot layers incorrect colours

I am having problems with the colours of my files when trying to batch plot.

The same layers are used on varies drawings although it only seems to effect half of them. This is only an issue when batch plotting from my computer both to the printer and as a PDF, and also seems to be incorrect on other computers in my office.

I should also add that I have a DGNLIB file that has overrides for the yellow and green levels.

As you can see in the images below only one of the references is effected with odd colours and the other is fine this is only seen when viewed on my computer for batch plotting. When I print the files by opening each one individually there is no problem.

Below that is an image from another computer in my office and the colours are incorrect on screen and when printing/batch plotting.

If anyone could help I would really appreciate it as I have not been able to find a solution.

Thank you

  • opening the file read only is as it states - it is read only and not allowing it to be changed in any way. What you are seeing in the read/write mode is the levels being changed "on the fly" to what is in your DGNLIB file. These changes do not exist in the actual file (which is why I though the save settings would stamp this into the file). There is an option in the level manager - update levels from library. Try opening the file read/write and with the file highlighted in the level manager, select the update levels from library. This should stamp the changes into the file. Do a save settings, exit the file and then open it read only. Does the file now reflect the needed symbology settings ?
