Fade Xref's only for plotting

Recommended Posts

smplyanne

Hello-

 

2 questions:

1. Does anyone know how to fade x-ref's in a drawing, only when plotting? I would like to make the site drawing print greyscale, or lighter- and keep our additions in full line weight.

2. If that is possible- Is it also possible to do this with only some, not all the xref's in the drawing? I have a master file for plotting in which everything is referenced together, and I would like to only grey out 2 of the files.

Thanks!

Running CAD 2010, windows 7.

Use the viewport override in Layer manager to set the xref's layers to a color that plots faded (assuming you are using a ctb to plot).
