Hi everyone

I recently upgraded to 2012. The problem I am having is when I am creating an in place family the screen goes very light and I have a hard time seeing lines and objects. I dont remember this as bieng a problem with previous issues. Is this a general problem or do  need to change some settings?

Thanks Ed

Make sure that in Grpahic Display Options for the view, you don't have a gradiated background turned on.  hard to see gray on gray, but gray on white or gray on black is pretty clear.

Thanks for replying. When I pick the graphic display options in the properties of the section view, I cant see any place to check the  gradiated background. The only view that I have that option is a 3D view.

I have the exact same problem. I know what it is doing, I just don't know how to fix it.

Here is what is happening.

When you enter into the Inplace family editor, it grayscales all model elements slightly, then when you create extrusions, etc. it grayscales the model elements and any other inplace family elements. This causes the model elements to all but disappear on the screen. Black background might show it better but I can't stand the black background so I don't use it.

In 2D views there is no option for background gradiant.

Thanks

I hope it is just a program setting and can be easily adjusted.

It's a setting.

 

Manage -> Additional Setting -> Halftone/Underlay.

 

Be careful, this is a global setting and will affect your documents if you are using halftone or underlay functionality to control graphic output.
