Viewport layer properties set one way, appear another.


Recommended Posts

Ok, so I have a viewport everything is good, the xref is looking like the original. UNTIL I set a scale to the viewport in paper space and all my layers shift colors, the doors and windows (I'm using autocad architecture 2012) change their display properties (which I know how to change in the original file but since you can't select the individual object, hence the xref, you can't access the display properties).

I want it to look like this (base file):


BUT when I set a scale in the viewport it changes to this (xrefed file):


As you can see, the way both the doors and windows display changes, layer properties change (colors) BUT the kicker is that in the layers manager they are all still set the way they are supposed to in both the layers and viewport layers manager.

ALSO, the blue lines showing the window sills should NOT be there.

Hi Trachulay and welcome to the forum!


I would recommend you use the built in image uploader (Go Advanced-button at the bottom right of the Quick Reply window) to get your images to display properly.
