Black text

Recommended Posts

This is probably a silly question, but in some drawings, every time I enter text, or do a dimension, they come up with a solid black fill. This happens even though the Attributes are set to no fill.

Any suggestions? Is there somewhere I don't know about that is setting this default?

In VectorWorks Preferences under the Display tab there is an option for "no fill behind text". If this is checked, you will have a fill behind the text and may be what is causing your problem.

The reason you are getting a solid black fill is that your last colored fill was black. Change your fill to solid and set the color to white (or what ever color you want) and then change back to the none fill.
