    Default Why Is My Drawing Turning White?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    This problem has started happening recently for whatever reason, but when I save my drawing (doesnt happen always), but it will turn everything on my drawning white in paper space.

    The layers are fine and the colors are fine, the properties are not changing. However the drawing being viewed is all white. When I look at my objects in the model space tab it is normal (all lines represent the correct color)

    Does anyone have an explanation and a way that I can fix this?

    Thanks

    Awesome, yeah that fixed it thanks guys.

    So why is it checking that box off for me in the first place? Been using 2009 for a year and it hasnt started to do it until now. Its an everyday thing. I dont want to have to check off a box all the time cause it converts it to white.

    My first guess is to check the Template you are using.
