Can anyone explain how I can get halftone lines to print? No matter what options I chose in the print dialog box > output, NOTHING works. It just prints out the gradient. Any suggetions or ideas? Running CS6 on Mac 10.7.5
You have to change your LPI.
Or to msilaulte this edit you gradient in illustrator: effect >> pixelate >> color halftone, enter a small amount like 12 for max radius.
If your printer is a PostScript printer capable of printing color separations, it may have a so-called "resolution enhancement" feature that is turned on by default. If so, you probably need to turn that off to get it to obey custom halftone settings. I know, for example, many HP laser printers are like that.
