PDF shaded grey?

Recommended Posts

In a plan, can't load it at this time, I insert a PDF & scale it.

While selected it displays as faded & shaded grey.

But when un-selected it remains grey.

I have to close X7 & reopen for it to turn white.

Is there a way to un-select so I don't have to shut X7 down?

You can see the new walls I added but the PDF grey's out all

Don't you use the PDF only for tracing, then turn off when you print? If not then you must change the pdf to have a white background

The PDF has a white background.

I did find that if you draw a wall & then use UNDO that will reset the PDF from grey to white.

Must be some sort of bug that leaves the PDF grey when you insert it & then scale it.

If it never happen to you it may be something in my computer that is not playing well with CA.

I guess I still don't understand what you are doing.

OK Insert a PDF into a plan.

Select it & it turns grey.

Use the scale command.

Un-select the PDF but it remains grey as if it was still selected.

In X8 the scale command does not show when I select it, only the resize command. For me I just grab a corner and drag it most of the time to resize it. But the background stays white for me all the time

Alan,  There are a couple of things that have been mentioned for situations like that to bump the program.  The one that I can remember is to hit undo and then redo but there are two or three other moves that do a similar thing that I have forgotten.

Thanks you sir, yes the UNDO does reset that grey condition.
