[Solved] Changing Color

Post by rootveg » Tue Dec 11, 2018 2:30 am

I now have a DXF file of one of our CAD projects. It was done in AutoCAD to start. It seems the CAD person used yellow walls on a black background as he was doing the drawing. CADintosh (by default?) shows the file as yellow walls on a white background, making the file hard to see. So what would be the easier do?:

Change layer 65 (the walls on this file) to an easier color to see like black? And would that change all of the current Layer 65 or just the new lines on that layer?

Or would it be easier to change the background from white to black? And would that be Layer 0?

Thanks

That depends on the pen mode.

Please check the menu Options/Pen.

Did you select individuell or pen based?

You can define the background color under menu Options/Colors.

For the pen question, the answer is individual.

I changed the background color and that worked fine. The yellow now stands out.

Thanks
