I have a plan set that includes old and new information, The new information I want to print black, but the old area I want to print in grey, the plan set is many pages with many base files.
Is there a way to put some sort of color blocking on my sheet set to have any lines within an area to print as color x and any lines outside to color as normal?
Ie a color override layer or color override box.
If anyone does graphics design I am thinking of something like a layer mask with a grey filter setting.
and if this isnt possible a different strategy to completing this.
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Tis can easily be done using paper space viewports and the layer overrides per viewport.
Hmm, I looked into this a bit but was kind of confused, you know of a good key word to search for help or you willing to make a work flow I can take a look at?
I think im starting to track what you are saying
I currently have 1 viewport in my layout, this is colored the same as model space (vp color) and prints correctly for an entire page.
I want that to only print normal colors for the small section of the page, the rest of the page, I want to have an override on the print color to have it grey out each of the lines a certain percent. I currently have all the lines on many vp colors (which then sets the vp plot style)
If I create a second Viewport, will I then have essentially 2 vp color and 2 vp line ect in my layers?
For each viewport you will have one set of VP... properties.
I'll attach a video soon. If your viewports aren't aligned like mine (donut in the middle) you can ignore the region and subtract commands and just have 2 regular viewports.
Here's the video. Not sure what happened to the audio.
