GAHL_Color
« on: March 15, 2014, 09:22:59 pm »
I am taking ID211 Lighting course.  My assignment requires me to identify luminaire lighting in CAD. I need help on how to add color to paperspace, when I print my paper space to adobe pdf I need my layers to be monochromatic, but also I need my luminaires lines filled with solid yellow. How do I do this?  I hope I this makes sense. ???
Any help would be wonderful!

Re: GAHL_PROBLEM WITH LUMINAIRE COVERING OTHER LAYERS
« Reply #4 on: March 19, 2014, 06:09:58 pm »
So everything worked with the luminaire color showing on a monochrome plot, however, my lighting is now covering up my other layers that are suppose to show through the lighting.  Any advice?
Thank you so much

Select the hatch or whatever is blocking the other elements, right click, go to Draw Order, and select send to back.  You can also set a transparency for a hatch which can help as well, just make sure you have plot transparency checked in the plot dialogue box.  Post again if this doesn't help.

It is possible that may have more to do with your settings in Adobe Acrobat.  Is your instructor commenting on it, or is it something just you have noticed?  Could you attach one of the affected pdfs so I can see what is happening?
