Update: In WinLINE V9, you can also activate WinLINE's Transparent Screen option from the same Setup dialog. To do this, select the checkbox under the Setup dialog's Transparency Tab. With transparent screen enabled, WinLINE for pen plotters will map screen colors to pen numbers on your plotter screen, which can help you pick up mistakes in pen numbers. If you use transparent screen, you will lose the pen mapping feature, so it's best to have the two features separate. For more info, see the Transparent Screen help section in the WinLINE V9 Help. Note that transparent screen does not work on some pen plotters, so if it doesn't work on your plotter, there's nothing you can do.
Update: In WinLINE V9, Color Associations is not supported by default and must be enabled from the Setup dialog. To enable Color Associations, select the checkbox under the Job Setup tab in the Setup dialog.
Color Associations is a feature that WinLINE for pen plotters offers to enable you to map specific colors to a specific pen number. To use Color Associations, you have to set up a Color Association in WinLINE when you first create the job. The Color Associations feature is only available in WinLINE V5 and later. For more details and instructions, see the Color Associations help section in the WinLINE V5 Help. Color Associations is not used when you enter a program to draw a line without first setting up a Color Association
How do I get WinLINE to draw grayscale lines and circles on a plotter? A: In the Windows environment, WinLINE will draw a grayscale line if the pen is down and the drawing software has asked for a grayscale plot. In this case, WinLINE will draw a grayscale line, only if you have selected the Grayscale option from the plotter's Color & Screen tab. Alternatively, you can use the Color Associations feature to map specific colors to specific pen numbers. For more info about the Color Associations feature, see the Color Associations help section 827ec27edc
