Q - question

HidePStyle - completely hide selected plot style for printing.

A - answer The AutoCAD plot style editor (STB) doesn't provide a way for hiding a given plot style completely. You always get at least 10% screening or white lines on a colored background.

If you need to completely and temporarily hide selected plot styles, you can use the HidePStyle add-on utility. Get it from Download, load the VLX file with APPLOAD and start the HidePStyle command. Enter the plot style name or pick a sample object. All DWG objects with this plot style assigned will be hidden temporarily (for display and print) in the current drawing. You can redisplay them either with UNISOLATEOBJECTS (2011+) or ShowPStyle (in 2010 and earlier).
