Transparency Of Lines Possible?

Recommended Posts

I've found how to change transparency for hatch/fill but what about lines, either cad or part of objects? For example I like to shade back my electrical symbols if I include them on my main floor plan instead of a dedicated electrical plan. Another case is showing demo walls shaded back and dashed. I would much rather do this than try to find greyscale colors that look similar. It would be great if you could set transparency by layer but does not appear to be the case.

Another line question.. Is there a setting similar to autocad LTScale? Or do you have to define new line types to get a different line style spacing?

Brian,

 

You can change the LineStyle, Color, LineWeight and Text Style on a per Layer Set basis.  IOW, the same Layer can have different display parameters in different LayerSets.  Then, if you also use Annosets, you can specify the defaults for Dimensions, Text, Rich Text, Callouts, Markers, Arrows, the current CAD Layer and even the desired Layer Set.

Yes, but what about line type scale and transparency? I haven't been able to find settings for these, other than fill style transparency.

Those don't exist in Chief.  You just have to adjust by using different line styles and colors of gray.

For lines, there is also the Drawing Group which may help with what you are trying to achieve.
