I have "container files" for my sheets, where I reference in all of the relevant files and adjust the display for the appropriate sheet type.
I would like to use the ability to "Adjust Colors" for one or two references so that they are subdued on the screen. I don't need to actually CHANGE the colors of the reference elements. We have a design script provided by our client that handles all the printing through various criteria and I don't want to potentially mess that up. I also don't want to go through the work of setting up level overrides and all that...I want to select my existing survey file, use the Reference "Adjust Colors" tool and dim that stuff down so that visually, on the screen, our proposed construction "pops" a bit more.
While I can do this with no problem in the container file, it doesn't appear to carry through into the sheet files. The container linework is dim, but the sheets are as bright as ever.
Is there a setting that would allow Adjusted Colors to carry through a nested reference? Or can that just not be done?Thank you.MaryB
It does work unless you change one tiny bit in the level settings of the reference (edit: in the host file). One setting override changes the behaviour for this reference. You can easily recognize that something was changed through the host file by a black dot in the level manager (also in the host file).
You also have to set a (new ?) variable called MS_NEST_COLORADJUSTMENT to 1.

I'm sorry but I don't understand your reply ..
Do you make the change for it to work ? and if so what is that change and where do we make it?

If you set that variable and then attach a reference the colors etc. will come through unless you change one single level setting in the reference in host file.
