Printing Monochrome

One of the options in the Print Dialog Box, is to 'force all colours to black'. GardenCAD users often choose this option if they are going to hand render a GardenCAD base plan.

The first figure below shows that 'force all colours to black' option circled in the Print box. The resultant print is shown in the second figure below. The third figure shows an adjusted version of the output where we have chosen to scale lineweights. Note the improvement in resolution of the symbol for the Bougainvillea on the boundary fence. Clearly there is a need to pay attention to the options in the print box when using GardenCAD.
