When I use the following syntax in my *.plt printer driver configuration file to map a certain color, the results are incorrect. The statement I'm using maps the color I want but it also maps an additional color which I did not expect. When using the following syntax, both color 215 and color 1 are being mapped to RGB value (180,180,180). I only want MicroStation color 215 to be affected:
Use the following syntax to map only color 215:
Note: MicroStation colors range from 0-255, plotter/printer devices range from 1-256. Plotter device values are always 1 number higher than MicroStation color values. Therefore, since the original pen mapping statement specified pen(2), it assigned the RGB value to MicroStation color 1 as well as color 215. The correct pen statement specifies pen(216) which correlates to MicroStation color 215, therefore the only color being affected in this instance is color 215 (as desired).
