Roof planes grayed with boxes in overview

Recommended Posts

When I select a roof plane in a 3D view, it is obscured by gray boxes. How do I get rid of this? I know it has to be a setting.

Lemme guess.  You're using Vectorworks?  A laptop you got off the sidewalk on East 85th, from a guy named Serge?

I have not seen these gray boxes before. Fully describe these "gray boxes". Could you give us pixel ratios. Perhaps compare them to a bread box? Oh wait, you could probably post an image to describe them...

 

Is it different in Ortho or Perspective? Reboot the computer and see if it changes? Maybe there is a memory drain going on. Is it only in overview or also in a perspective camera view? What rendering technique or all rendering techniques?

Well, I can draw houses, and I can build houses, but I can't seem to work a screen capture.

Screen Capture on a PC; hit "Print Screen" on your keyboard.  Go to the Desktop and Paste (Ctrl + V).  This will place the screen capture on your desktop.  You could also paste it to any folder.

I personally paste it into Paint where I can crop it and make notations.

Does it look like this??

 

If so, this is how it has always been for me as far as I can remember anyway.

You can also modify what the selection color is for items selected. I use a brigher color so I can clearly identify the selected object.

There's a Tool in Windows called "Snipping Tool" located in the Accessories Folder.

 

It's about as good as it gets.  It's very easy to use and even porvides some markup and annotation capability.
