Hi all:

I know about the pink lines, green lines, and black line, but I recieved a part from another person and it had red lines for the sketch, how, what did he do to get those?

He doesn't know how he did it.

Was it imported from Acad?  Don't the sketches
of imported ACAD sketches keep the colours from ACAD?

Looks that way, I tried it and the lines were red.

The individual is hard to work with and won't say.

If you copy the red lines they should turn to
your normal color lines if they are indeed lines imported from dwgs. Least
that's the way I get them to change.

I think it was suggested to turn them into
construction lines and back and that would change the colour.

Cool ... I'll try that next time. I think I
stumbled on the copy thingy because I had to copy to the origin anyway. Thanks
for the tip!

I have only seen red sketch lines when I am working with a sketch that has imported geometry from AutoCAD. I made the sketch lines look like (and react like) regular sketch lines by following these steps:

 

- Select all of the geometry in the sketch

- Right click and select 'Properties' 

- A dialogue box will pop up, all you need to do is select 'default' for all of the options in the dialogue box (color, line type, etc.)

 

The lines should switch color and react like regular lines. Hope this helps!

I doubt if it will help the original poster-- he hasn't posted anything on here in more than four years, and this thread is nearly ten years old.  Ten years ago, I don't believe that Inventor had properties for sketch geometry.
