Turn off 2D Fill globally

Recommended Posts

I would like to turn off 2D fill globally, but how? One cannot select several blocks and uncheck the 2D fill box.

I would like to be able to turn off 2D fill on ALL symbols.

This should probably be posted over in the general Q&A section.

It also might help if you could describe your reasoning for wanting to turn fills off. There may be other ways of achieving the desired result.

I work with a black background and on fairly large industrial & commercial projects of 50K to 150K square feet. It's not unusual to have a 100 or so layers..

Frequently I have to do furniture, equipment and machinery layouts for medical manufacturing firms as an example. This is typically after the structural, architectural and EMP drawings are finished.

The on- screen drawing becomes a mix of filled and unfilled symbols, blocks etc. I prefer uniformity, along with not having to constantly bring objects that might be sitting on a desk (keyboard, monitor, phone etc.) to the forefront. This step would not be necessary if the objects were not filled.

If they are globally filled - why, or how, can they be globally un-filled.

I don't recall it being this way back in versions 3 thru 10 - before the X versions came out.
