I have a black&white laser (HP laserjet 4v), so I'm printing all my drawings
using plot style: Monochrome. This way all my lines are solid regardless of
color they are drawn.
Now, this work perfectly when plotting from model-space, but when I plot
from paper-space, my lines get "screened". Best part is that this doesn't
happen all the time. It depends on the drawing... I think. Most of my
drawings are originally drawn with previous versions of ACLT.
The solution doesn't work for me, I need to print say blue at 0.4mm and green at 0.15mm. The monochrome setting doesn't allow me to do this - the Laserjet printer tries to replicate the colours and rasterizes the lines!!
Any other solutions? This worked fine with AutoCAD LT 2000.

using color-based or named plot style tables you can have every color
(or even every object) plot exactly the way you want. This not only
includes plot color and linewidth but also many additional plot
settings. Just create your own plot style table (color-based in your
case), then edit it to make blue print at 0.4mm black, green at 0.15mm
black and so on.
