raster file pen
Can a pen be assigned to a raster file? I tried to change a pen in a raster file and it didn't take. I tried this by choosing the question mark in the utilities section of the raster file which gives the option of changing things.

A pen is assigned to a raster entity - meaning that the raster entity does have a value for the pen flag, just like every other entity. On a raster entity (image) the pen is meaningless. A raster image is simply a collection of dots (pixels) and the image that is printed depends on the color of each dot. Nothing about this can be changed by changing the pen flag unlike the other vector entities.

The pen flag on a raster entity does come into play if the raster entity is placed in pen 0. In this case, pen 0 means no plot - meaning your raster entity will not show up in plots.
