Gray Layer and Class Print Options?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone from Nemetschek expand upon these new options? Perhaps with an illustration or two?

We received feedback that, when printing grayed classes / layers, the gray color was either too heavy or too light.

In VW 2008, you can use a slider to adjust how light or dark the grayed classes / layers print.

Katie,

I Thank Nemetschek greatly for adding this one small feature. I am one of the people who has been requesting this for as long as I can remember.

Now finally, the greyed layer or class can actually be used for what I assume has been its intention all along, to not only display on screen as grey, but to be printed as grey at a useable level in the output for anyone, on any printer.

This one feature alone might be strong enough reason for the 2008 upgrade!

JD,

It's a print setting - so any grayed layers or classes will all print at the same grayed layer.

If you want to set a gray color on a layer by layer basis, use layer colors or viewports with layer overrides. If you want to set a gray color on a class by class basis, use class attributes, or adjust class opacity levels.
