Re: VIEWPORT COLOR OVERRIDE NOT WORKING

VP overrides are used to override the layer settings, they won't override an object with individual property override, even in the same drawing.

 

IMO, if the objects need to be displayed differently, then that means the are "different" from the other objects, and therefore deserve their own layer.

"VP overrides are used to..." - noted many thanks

 

I would therefore be interested in your opinion how you would organsie the following layers.  As you will see in the video I have a plan showing the areas around a window.  The walls, where the section is taken are on blue so they print heavy.  If you look at the yellow line they are still walls but need to print lighter .  However, as the section is takn above this area they should be on a heavier line weight (in my case on the yellow colour) but still remain on the walls layer.

 

As you have kindly seen in this post the walls on the yellow override will not come out grey as I would like.   Please see link below.....

I had a similar issue when working with an extremely large references. After the layerstate is applied, try REGENALL. It worked for me. Could be a memory thing with CAD.
