Layout View not showing layers colors properly

This is very strange. I started with a template that was defined to be used with a stb. I converted the file to use a ctb and assigned the ctb to the page layout, now in the page layout all the objects appear to be white and don't show the colors of the defined layers.

I was expecting to be able to still see the layer properties (colors) even in the layout and only expected to see them white(black) in the plot preview. In model view all layer properties are normal and view as expected.

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong here?

The display of plot styles is turned on in that layout. (This is independent of the type of plot style table being used.)

Toggle it off in the Page Setup Dialog box; there is a toggle in the Plot Style Table area of the dialog.

Yep, that was it.

Thanks David!
