Hi,

I have  a linked AutoCAD file in my revit project. In certain views the.dwg file appears black and white,  but in other views the same .dwg file retains its own line colours. Where are the settings for this?

Thanks

Colin

Thanks WW... But! there are no overrides set up for the individual autocad lines in the view where the .dwg appears black and white. There must be some single override that turns the whole .dwg file black and white in that view only... and I still can't find it!

When you import a file, you have the option to preserve or invert the colors or change them to B&W.

yeah, I can see that... but it's the same imported file that is appearing differently in the different views...

Did you check the individual over-ride.  Right-Click on the entire import - over-ride graphics in view ...by element - color?

That looked promising for a minute.... but that's not it either. There are no overrides in the "view specific element graphics" in the view where the .dwg appears in black.

I am able to make the .dwg file appear black in the other views using this option, so it works... but there's something else that affects it too obviously...

You know we can only guess so much ... this is your project.  Are you sure that this is the same instance of the import... that this is not an import this view only where it is set to B&W on import?   Delete it and see if it goes away in the other views.
