    Default X-ref to dark

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    When I lock my x-ref's they become dark and hard to see and when I unlock them they are still dark and hard to see. How can I fix this? I'm using Autocad 2012 if that helps.
    Just a minor set back for a major come back!

    Please check if this previous discussion is helping you.

    More precisely, the system variables you may want to adjust are LAYLOCKFADECTL and XDWGFADECTL.

    XDWGFADECTL

    LAYLOCKFADECTL

    These are the system variables that are at hand here. Have a look at them. Also, a regen may be necessary after unlocking.
    Drafting is a breeze.
