elevation views going to layouts in color instead of black and white vector

Recommended Posts

Anyone else had this issue? The cross section camera views I am sending to the layout page have started coming in as color.  Do you know the fix on this?  Using X8. Thanks!

Are you un-checking Color Fill when you send to Layout?

You can also open the Layout Box dbx and uncheck the Color Fill box:

Maybe you sent it to the layout as an image instead of a plot lines.

No such luck. This is the settings and image that I end up with on the layout page.  You can see some of the other views are normal black and white views.  Not sure what happened.  I have had it happen before and it seemed like when clicked on it and opened the view that it became normal once I closed it again.  This time that isn't working.

It is because you are sending it as a live view.  Send it to layout as plot lines without the color fill and it will look right.

I've had all sorts of issues with visual settings matching what layout shows.  However, it all seems to print correctly - so if you make a PDF or send to printer the results match the settings.

I have always sent it as a live view.  If I send it as plot lines, will it still update like the live view does when changes are made?

Yes, but you have to tell it to update.  You can update all views at once with the icon that look like two arrows forming a circle.

The print is definitely clear enough but the line weight of the colored views is different than the original black and white vector views.

Great!!!  good to know.  I will try that, now....... just did it and that worked.  Thanks!!!  Still don't understand why the live view started acting that way as I never have used the plot lines method before.  Glad I have a work around, now.

Diane,

 

I am assuming that you want to retain the fill, but have it greyscale rather than colored?

To do this, you can use Live View + Always Update.

The display of color in layout is then controlled by the Color toggle in the original elevation view.

 

Live View (with or without) Update Always is pretty cool because it reflects exactly what your camera view displays, including Rendering Technique, shadows, color/b&w, etc.
