Viewport Colours

This will probably be a very simple fix to this.

 

I have a drawings with multiple layouts. In the first layout the whole drawing looks exactly like in does in model space, with reference to the colours. In the other layout the drawings all change colour to what they will look like when printed.

 

In these other layouts if I copy a viewport the colour returns, but if I change to another layout and back again then it reverts to what the original was. I have attached an image.

 

 Vp Colour.gif 

 

The copied vp is the one on top.

 

Like I said proably a quick fix but I dont know where to start. Is it something to do with Vp colour overrides?

 

Thanks.

Sounds like "Display Plot Styles" has been ticked in the plot manager.

Right-Click the layout tab, select Page Setup Manager, select the layout, select modify, untick "Display Plot Styles".
