Sheet/Layout color display

Post by Peter G » Thu Jan 09, 2014 7:33 am


I know that you can change the color of the screen in Layout, like white for paper. But whenever I put my sheet/title block in, as it bigger than the one already in the layout it only has the grey background. Sometime when I've finished on the drawing and printed it, it only then has the white background, but sometimes this still doesn't happen. Can this be rectified? or am I doing something wrong?

As soon as you set the page size for the layout then the background will adjust to show the sheet as appropriate, based on the specified sheet size and margins. This can be done using either the Page Setup command or the Print command. If you still don't see the white sheet, make sure that you've inserted your title block at/near 0,0.
