Q - question

I want to display my drawing the same way it is printed (e.g. black-and-white display of a DWG)

A - answer If you want to display your drawing layout exactly the same way it is finally plotted out on the paper (lineweights, color shades, monochrome plotting...), check the option for displaying plot styles. They will be applied on the screen as well.

You can find the checkbox "Display plot styles" in the top right corner of the "Page setup manager" dialog - see the command PAGESETUP.

The same setting can be the source of an unintended behavior - black-and-white display of your drawing in a layout or model.
