I have a site plan with a .BMP image of the original conditions. I need to draw a few Dimensions and Notes over the .BMP. Nothing seems to work. I tried moving the .BMP behind the other objects. I tried changing the layer order. Every time I try to print it, the .BMP covers up anything in it's space.
1. In the Print menu, try using WYSIWYG if not already set , 2. In the Print/Pen Table set the Print order of Bitmaps and Fills to First, 3. In Utility/Display/Layer Order select Last for the active layer, 4. Double check the bitmap is actually on a different layer to the dimensions/text. 5. Tab to the dim/text layer, regen, update the GTV if one is set and try a Quicklayout and print preview.
If you going to output in grayscale, you might want to reduce the hue to 33%, or even 25% to maintain the contrast. Especially if it's going to be reproduced. If you don't need fine detail, consider reducing the pixel density or the "dpi" of the original. There a huge difference between pixels on a monitor needed for clarity, and the dpi in a color or grayscale printout.
