Problem changing display colour of xref polylines..

Recommended Posts

I need to produce a pdf in black/white/red. To achieve this I'm using a colour ctb but changing all the viewport layer display colours to white (except the linework that I need in red) and therefore print black. The problem linework is xref and seems to be either circles, rectangle or 3D polylines, that will not change their viewport display colour even though I have actually changed them to white? They just print their original colour.

Is it not possible to just change the colours on the xref file?

Yes, the color(s) of the objects in the XREF need to be set to "ByLayer" in order for the XREF layer to control the color.

Not all linework set to 'ByLayer'.

Open you ctb file and edit. Select white/ black for all colors other then red. And if the xref file is not using true color you will be able to print black and white.
