Raster Options Dialog
Used to adjust the printing settings for raster references. These settings are not saved in the printer driver configuration file; they are used for the current print only.
Parameters set via this dialog correspond directly to raster controls in the printer driver configuration file. Valid ranges for some settings, however, are not identical to the printer driver configuration files. This permits consistency with the Raster Manager user interface while maintaining compatibility with legacy printer driver configuration files.
|Print raster images||Enables or disables the printing of all types of rasters, including Raster Manager attachments and imported DGN rasters. If this check box is off, the other Raster Color and Raster Quality fields are not enabled.|
|Print raster in grayscale||Enables or disables the grayscale printing of raster files.|
|Print monochrome raster as-is|| Enables or disables the application of color rules to monochrome raster attachments. Color rules specify that when printing, the raster's foreground color is inverted if it is identical to the background color of the output media. The default is unchecked, indicating color rules should be applied.
|Brightness|| Sets the brightness for the display of raster image files referenced to the model. No changes are made to the original raster file. Setting the brightness to a value greater than zero increases the brightness. Setting the brightness to a value less than zero decreases the brightness.
Values from –100 to 100 inclusive may be keyed into the text field, or set via the slide control.
|Contrast|| Sets the contrast for the display of raster image files referenced to the model. No changes are made to the original raster file. Setting the contrast to a value greater than zero increases the contrast. Setting the contrast to a value less than zero decreases the contrast.
Values from –100 to 100 inclusive may be keyed in to the text field, or set via the slide control.
|Quality factor|| Sets the percentage of the printer's resolution that is used when printing raster attachments. A value of 50 means that raster attachments are scaled to 300 DPI when printing to a 600 DPI printer. Lower quality settings print faster and generate smaller plot files. Higher quality settings print slower and create larger plot files.
Values from 1 to 100 inclusive may be keyed in to the text field, or set via the slide control. When you change the Quality factor field or slide control you will see the DPI change in the Raster resolution (dpi) field below the Printer resolution (dpi) field.
