Sbeth85 posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI have a layer for boiserie that needs to be printed out in a dark brown, but I can barely decipher it in Model Space on the black background. So, I've been tending to change the layer color to light brown just so I can see it. Yesterday, I accidentally ordered 30 huge colored sheets with the wrong layer color!! What a waste! Anyways, I know you can go into individual Viewports and can change a layer color one by one. My question is the inverse- I want to change the layer color ONLY for viewing purposes in Model, and for the layer to print out in its original dark color in ALL the viewports, as normal. Does anyone know how to do this?
I am using Autocad 2007. Cannot get the all lines and text to plot correctly, some are correct but some are way too thick as though they are potting by thickness and not color. I changed the color and they still plot thick. In checking the properties box they all seem to be the same. Tried blocking and got the same. It also creates the thick lines when I create a PDF. I think the original drawing was created in ProCAD. Could it be holding the original default and if so how do I reset them back? When I plot in monochrome they are better but still some lines come out wrong.
