Gray scale or B&W viewports


Recommended Posts


Is there a way to create grayscale or more prferably just B&W viewport of my garden design's masterplan that has various hardscape with different attributes and textures?

Also, whats the quickest way to cover a landscape area with just 2D symbols of plants to show mixed planting border?

Yes, When you select the Viewport go to the OIP and at the bottom you will see a button for Advanced Properties. Here you should select the Black and White Only option at the bottom.

If you have plants in the Landscape area set, in the OIP set the 3D Display to 3D Plants and ungroup the Landscape Area. The plants will show up. Be aware as now it is not a Landscape Area so if you need the LA the duplicate and ungroup. Also if you are counting the plants in the LA area then set all the other (ungrouped LA plants) to Not On Plant List in the OIP.
