Use alternative palette when outputting palette text

By default, palette text will be output to a plotter (or other machine) using the same palette as the entity, but this isn't always what you want. For example, if you're drawing with a manufacturing type palette, such as Cut/Crease, it's more likely that you'll want to use a palette suitable for text. Switch this option on if you want to use an alternative palette.

To output the palette text you also need to switch on the Output palette text option in your Post-processor attributes.

Output palette

From the pulldown list choose the required alternative palette.
