Need Phantom font to show as very light grey in PDF

Hello Everyone,

 

I have a very large assembly where I am showing Harnesses to installed. Very busy assembly.

The typical method of showing an installation drawing for piping or cabling is to show the Harness

as dark solid lines and the rest of the assembly as light phantom lines. 

The phantom lines are phantomfont and color secondary highlight. The only way we have figured out to have the phantom lines to show up in the PDF and print as light grey is to snapshot the view as draft entities.

The draft entities show up as light grey. 

I do not like the idea of non-parametric views. It's also a long process someone has developed.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated

When saving as a PDF, select options and chang color to Grayscale.

Hello, I am a bit further in the weeds with this.

Yes, I have been using greyscale for the creation of PDF.

I have been using print preview to manipulate custom pen table real-time.

Need pen 3 for phantom font to equal pen 7.

Thanks for the response
