    Default Model space colors not showing properly

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi all,

    I'm having a problem with one drawing out of a dozen. I have all my colors set to "by layer" however all my text/linework are MOSTLY grey scaled out. I have some entities on my "ADD" LAYER which will show the color properly - in this case red. But, some lines will be greyed out and I'll have to double click them to show red, but once I de-select, they'll go back to grey.



    It's like I have hit some setting/variable and I don't know how I did it because the other 10 drawings are fine. I've done recover, purge, audit, overkill. I've restarted the pc.





    Really stumped.

    Can you attach a copy of the .dwg file so we can have a go at it ourselves? Image files are not acceptable.

    When you look at the “STYLIZATION” option, it was ON. But when you turn off, voila!.



    Command: MAPDISPLAYMANAGER

    Display Manager [?/Load/Update/Stylization/eXit] <eXit> :U

    Updating...

    Display Manager [?/Load/Update/Stylization/eXit] <eXit> :U

    Updating...

    Display Manager [?/Load/Update/Stylization/eXit] <eXit> :S

    Stylization [On/oFf] <On> : F

    Display Manager [?/Load/Update/Stylization/eXit] <eXit> :Regenerating model.

    So frustrating.
