Are there different print drivers to handle the printing of transparent objects in MicroStation v8i? I am using an older printer.plt driver and the transparent objects plot as solid.
Printer.plt is a print driver that will support plotting transparencies in MicroStation V8i. Most likely the cause of the problem is not having the "Rasterized' option checked in the Print Dialog box. This option is in the "General Settings" section of the Print Dialog box and will cause the entire plot to be sent as a single image.
