Why the objects on the artboard black and white?

I was working in Illustrator this morning and has the selected text tool.  I clicked on the screen and somehow, everything changed in black and white, even if when you click on an object, it shows it is in color.  Also, I am not able to move anything.  I have no idea of what I did, but when I open a new document in Illustrator, it displays the same thing... only the contours.  Maybe someone knows how to solve this problem and what I did?  Any help would be appreciated.  Here is a screenshot.

Thank you

  • change the default black and white only on 8610

    Can I change the default to always go to the ink black and white?

    Windows! This is wonderful thanks!

  • Why can I not print in black and white only?

    Why is the HP Officejet Pro 8600 more unable to print black and white only if the black cartridge is not empty?

    What I mean is that I went into the settings to set the printer to print black and white only but also print text in black only.  Yet, I HAVE to replace the cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges, because they are exhausted.  Nothing to do with black printing, whereas a SEPARATE black cartridge is and is always full should cyan, magenta and yellow ink?

    I'm aggravated about how the driver for this printer is designed TO FORCE me to buy cartridges not black when I deliberately put printing be BLACK ONLY.  I'm unable to move forward with my impression.  This is considered to be a show-stopper and is unacceptable as the setting that I've assigned and exhausted cartridges message contradict each other.  If the adjustment is made for print in black and white only including text, then print black and white, because I know that the black ink is still available.

    Take into consideration that printing may take place at any time.  Not being able to use black as my other color (WHICH IS NOT EMPTY AND IS A SEPARATE CARTRIDGE) forces me to stop.  I can't go forward until the store open.  Wal-Mart isn't always an option.   It's lost time.

    The inability to switch to self-supply to meet to use the black cartridge is only a waste of time.

    Call it for what it is, a form of ransom. HP wants me to spend the money on the color cartridges that have nothing to do with black and white printing.   When I am ready to print in color, which should be a time of my choosing.

    Either way, the form, which I am trying to print is black and white only.  No color is on this form.  It is foolish to force printing in color to a black and white document.


    Specially protect the print heads printers much NEED other inks even they only print in black. During the warm-up process, printers require all inks so they can stop before we continue. Some printers allow printing (especially those who have the ink tank three colors), but they can print at a speed of snail baby.

    Kind regards.

  • Why inexplicably turn my clip in black and white?

    This sounds really weird, but it has happened twice now.  Edition of base done and just messing around with transitions and suddenly a small clip is shot in black and white.  Thought maybe I accidentally lit black and white I went in the correction of color and enabled the black and white option.  No effect.    Someone at - it never have this happen?  I see a green line in the clip (an index), but what that means, I don't know.

    Thank you very much!


    new answer to the old question I know but I just looked for an answer to this problem and solved then.

    When I scroll quickly the effects window, looking for something...  using the mouse wheel. My cursor could be in the middle of the effects window. While I scrolling on the effect, which said luma / composite that, just change a listel. Try it. Happening the clip of color in black and white. Click on change this before, I tried but it didn't fix the problem, but simply scroll again and it changes color. Yes! Prior to this, my work around was to remove all the effects of this clip and copy of the effects above another element in the sequence.

  • Why I can't print black and white if the yellow cartridge is empty but the black is full?

    I have a Photosmart C7250 all-in-one and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, why can't I print in black and white if a color cartridge is empty? The black cartridge is full, it is not the only one to be used? Is there a setting somewhere that I can change just print in black? I tried the black and white option through command prompt on my computer but the printer always gives me an error message saying that I need to replace the yellow before I can print.

    The reason that this, your printer is actually not to damage the internal parts.  Mainly the printhead.  It is built in integrated security to help protect your investment.  HP, as other printer manufacturers, offers you with permanent print heads printers requiring ink for all colors, avoid the print heads. HP, like some other manufacturers, also offers printers with user replaceable print heads. These may or may not require ink in all colors in print, even though damage may occur if the print from the cartridge empty. Finally, HP as some other manufacturers also offers printers with the printhead into the ink supply. He is replaced at each change of cartridge. These printers will happily print with a diet low, empty or many deleted completely same models.  I understand that it can be very annoying, but it's a necessary.

  • JPG of Windows Photo Gallery will not be printed in black and white / grayscale, than by the color.

    All of a sudden, for some reason unknown to me, my mon imprimante printer does not print images JPG from Windows Photo Gallery black and white or grayscale. No matter if I turn it on to or black and white color option / shades of gray option, it only prints in color. If I remove the color of my printer ink cartridge and leave the black alone to, and order the printer to print in black, the printer behaves as if it was printing but the page comes out blank.

    If I try to print, for example Word documents in black and white / shades of gray, they come out, as requested.

    Help, please! Thank you.

    Hi Ulap,

    A. from when what happens?

    B. you are able to print the other black and white file formats?

    First of all, check if you are able to print black and white photo viewer.

    Then, run an auditor of system files (sfc scan) on your computer in order to replace the files corrupted on your computer.

    1. click on the Start button

    2. on the Start Menu, click all programs followed by accessories

    3. in the menu accessories, right-click on command line option

    4. in the drop-down menu that appears, click the "Run as Administrator" option

    5 If you have the enabled User Account Control (UAC) you will be asked to consent to the opening of the command line. You simply press the button continue if you are the administrator or insert password etc.

    6. in the command prompt window, type: sfc/scannow then press enter

    7. a message is displayed to indicate that "the analysis of the system will start.

    8. be patient because the analysis may take some time

    9. If all the files need replace SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Vista DVD for this process to continue

    10. If all goes although you should, after the analysis, see the following message "Windows resource protection not found any breach of integrity.

    11. once the scan is finished, close the command prompt window reboot the computer and check if the problem persists.

  • C665 satellite malfunction - black and white pixel graphics glitter

    Hi all

    I thought that you may be able to help! my graphics are crazy, there are random distortion of the screen under windows (boxes drooping and tear for example) and the pixel black and white flickering little almost constantly.

    Then on games like age of empires, the screen goes crazy flick images autour and in fps games well its completely crazy thousands of ears 3d flashing around the screen... I have a video, but I'm not sure that I can download it here...

    I tried drivers and the restoration of the system without success... have you ever heard about something like this and have any suggestions on how to fix this?



    > I tried drivers and system restore without success... Have I you heard something like this and have any suggestions on how to fix this?

    In my opinion, you need to connect the laptop to the external display just to check if its display problem internal or maybe the graphics card issue. I think its GPU problem, but an external monitor is worth a try.

    However, in both cases the defective part must be replaced. :(

  • How can I make my officejet 6500 a print in black and white only?

    I am trying to print documents, not photos, in black and white.  The computer is a Macbook Air.  I'm looking for the manual, and I don't see how to set up printing black and white document WITHOUT PRINTING FAST current of AIR.

    Thanks a lot for helping me with this.

    I prefer, if possible, to make the default for printing black and white documents (which are not fast drafts). ***

    Hi @presentmomentum,

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    Here's how to adjust the color temperature:

    When you go to print a document, click on "Show details" (next, where it says PDF). Then click on 'TextEdit' and click on 'Type/quality paper.' From there, you can select the grayscale, black and white or color and toggle various levels of quality (Normal, Best project). If you use the grayscale function, you can choose just to use the black cartridge only.

    Let me know if it helps. If I helped you to solve the problem and that you liked this post, feel free to give me virtual accessories by clicking on the "Thumbs Up" icon below by clicking on "Accept as Solution" (this will help others find the solution).

  • OfficeJet 6700 scan enlarges doc in jpg format. Scan PDF is in black and white

    I have a new HP Officejet 6700. My operating system is Mac OS X v8.5.8.

    I went to scan a document as a jpg file and it scanned and was recorded in my computer (wireless).

    The problem is that all the documents have been enlarged during the process, therefore, only about 1/3 of the document is scanned. How can I reduce the scan so that the entire document (8 "x 10") is visible in the scanned jpg?

    Also note that this enlargement is not the case when recording in pdf format, but the analysis is the only black and white, not the color of my document was. The scan jpg, although enlarged, was at least in color. Help! THX.

    Thanks for the post. With this one, click on the following link for some great information/options analysis including the software of scan MAC and the HP scanning software. Good luck!
