Does anyone know if you can screen the revision cloud lines to print screened? When you cloud items especialy when your just changing a number we don't want the cloud to cover other items. And halftone just changes it on the screen not when printed.

Thanks in advance.

Learn  to use your HELP - it really answers a lot of questions.  Searching halftone settings, you find this:

Thanks for your responce WWHub. I do use the HELP file. I need to re word my question. I want to make the Revision Clouds Transparent not halftone when we print. I have a feeling that I can't in Revit.

Thanks again

I wish you had read the link I posted.  If you had, you might understand how to set up your halftone so that prints like you want.  The issue is your settings.

Perhaps I am still not explaining clearly what I want.  I am able to make the clouds half tone, but when the clouds overlap with other objects, the clouds block the information underneath such as text.  Please see the attached pdf file.  I would like to be able to put the cloud behind other objects or have the cloud print transparent so you can see both objects - the cloud and text.

You did complain that halftone did not print and that was what I responded to.

Clouds are always on top so you have to draw them so they do not cover up important information.

Use a print driver that allows line merge.  For Bluebeam under "General Settings" check the "Line Merge" checkbox, select "Advanced", select Blend Mode "Darken", select Opacity "100%".  See results in attached image.

We never found a reason to use Bluebeam but this looks like it may be useful.  Maybe thngs have changed since Bluebeam first came out.
