vector view shadows


Recommended Posts

1.  If i send an elevation view (in vector view with shadows on) to layout, is there a way I can reduce the "graying out" of the foundation or adjust the intensity of the gray fill? 

2.  Is there a way to set the defaults for edge lines and pattern lines in Chief so that the elevation view edge lines and pattern lines always come in the same?  I can't find a setting for that anywhere in Chief. Thanks everyone!

Try adjusting the shadow intensity.

Edge lines should be controlled by your layer set. For pattern lines, it's by pattern, so you can adjust them by editing the materials. Use the rainbow tool and click on the material in an elevation view.

I use a line weight of 0 so they are as thin as possible.

When you send to layout you can select Plot Lines, and select Use Edge Line Defaults and Use Pattern Line Defaults

 

This overrides the object's line weight settings

 

Then within the layout you can open the layout box and change the line thickness or color

 

That's what I do and I like having a quick simple EASY way to make sure all the edge and pattern lines are consistent

 

I usually make the pattern lines gray once in layout, I think it's a nice look
