IDW sheet colour changes

Hi,

 

I have just upgraded to inventor 2012, now when I add dimensions to drawings the sheet colour changes?

The attached .jpeg is not very good qualty but explains what is happening!

 

Also we have some old drawings, (pre 2009) that open with a grey sheet colour but dont change as above?

 

Is this a setting somewhere or a bug?

 

Inventor 2012 sp1 win7 sp1 64bit. We're running 4 2012 seats and i'm the only one with this issue!

 

Cheers

Hi Nomé

 

It was a while ago that i posted this problem and I cant remember how we got around it. All i know is that we dont have the problem now.

 

I think maybe it was a bug and and a complete restart sorted the problem out?

 

Sorry for not being much help.

I tried to replicate the issue with prehighlight and enhanced prehighlight etc under options but could not. See if you can go to tools> documents settings and check the colours there - see attached. It's a long shot but you never know. I've never seen that before.
