adjust color drawing view

Hi,

I want to use a drawing planview as an underlay to draw some extra's who need attention.

So I want to print the complete reference in a grey color, so new added elements are more visible.
presentation of DV is set to "synchronize view: All settings

What is the best way to have this done?
If I try to adjust colors in the reference properties settings, the display is changed the way I want,
but the colors in the printed (pdf) file are not adjusted
sure, the check mark is checked near "print Adjusted Colors"
what else can be blocking the adjustment for colors

regards Rik

  • Hello Rik, 

    You can make any of your drawing view models display in grey scale when they are referenced to your sheet model by opening the drawing model after it gets created and before it gets referenced into the sheet.

    1.  Open the Level Manager and select the drawing model under the design model  in the hierarchy tree on the left side.
    2.  Change Symbology from "ByLevel" to "Overrides".
    3.  On the right side of the Level Manager, list the levels by "Used" to show the used levels at the top of the list.  Select them all and change the color to the desired grey or whatever color you want to display in your sheet model.
    4.  Close the Level Manager.
    Right click on any one of the elements displayed in the view and select "Set Referernce Presentation".
    5.  Click on "Level Overrides" under the Presentation category.  Click  OK.

    Please let me know if it helps. 

    Thanks & Regards,
