Model Space Background changed to black automatically
« on: September 23, 2014, 08:36:06 pm »
I have been working on a plan in model space and the background suddenly changed to black and the lines are very faint. Paper space is ok. I'm not sure what I did for it to change. How do I get it back to the original color / format? Screen shot attached. Thanks

Hi-
I actually work with my model space in black, but that is a preference.
Anyway, type in the word OPTIONS and hit enter.
This should bring up a box with multiple tabs. One should say Display, and you can set the color of your model space here.
There are a few options, so let us know if you can't find it and we can do a video or screen shot.
I am not sure how this would happen by itself.
Hope this helps!
Nina

Hi Nina,
Thanks for the tip but why are my lines so faint and it looks like all of the line weights are gone as well?

If you want to draw with the line weights visible (this is again a personal preference), there is a button at the bottom on the screen Show/Hide Lineweights.  It looks like a + with two of the lines heavier and two lighter.  Just keep in mind this setting only gives you a visual of your line weights, it has no effect on how they plot.
