gray layer visibility too light

Recommended Posts


I agree. I would be very nice to have control over how dark the grayed layers/classes are. I have used a couple of methods to work around this. I am sure there are many including adjusting printer output.

1) Set the Opacity of the background layers to achieve desired graying. Helps to also set the Views of background layers to Top. This works but is not very elegant.

2) A slightly more elegant solution: In the sheet layer you want the framing backgrounds, duplicate the viewport showing your framing - don't move it - crop it so it is larger than framing viewport - send it to back - set its layers and classes to desired background - set its View to top - in its Advanced properties, set the line weight scale to .01. Produces very small line weights.

Good luck
