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 adjustedsure, the check mark is checked near "print Adjusted Colors"what else can be blocking the adjustment for colors
what about drawing rules? You can set (if it's a ) Reference to a grey Color.
I hive this a try,
but NO, the DV does not rendered grey
this is a simple file, (elements between the walls are simple shapes)
attached the same file : this renders grey
attached the drawing view : this is not affected
I have set the view to "grey" (new display style)in this display style there is a display rule to render references to presentation greyso the simple reference is rendered correct,the drawing view is not affected even this is reference
if I change presentation in the drawing view itself, the view can be rendered in grey
so it is necessary to make a separated file to be used as the underlay where all styles are set.in a dgnlib, the display styles for grey must be set ( front / back / cut ) & reference grey (display rule)the DV presentation setting: synchronize View must be set to Volume only, so the "clip Volume" settings for forward / back can be changed,
a lot of styles and rules and sub files must be created to do a simple grey out for an underlay
anyone having a more simple way to do this?
The Drawing Model use forward and cut drawing as Display Style. So assign the Rule to these Styles.
and I use Symbolgy Overrides.
Can you use that per reference? So that ventilation is brown and electric is red etc.
And per level?

yes you can filter the View for most Element Attributes. And you can ask for different Attributes with an AND/OR Statement
But isn't it more more work than just select levels and set symbology?
