When exporting to a ASCII or Binary DWF, file the file appears as all white on the Autodesk Design Review viewing screen rather than the entity colors from the .dwg file.  How do I correct this?

Please define "exporting" and from which CAD program... .

Exporting means saving a .dwg file in some other format, such as .dwf or .pdf. I am using Bricscad version 12

So you are asking about creating a DWF from BRICSCAD, made by someone other than Autodesk? How do you know it creates colored binary DWF files? Are you sure there is no setting in the program to turn colors on and off? YOu can do so in AutoCAD for example using plot style tables... .

 

How would asking over here (the viewer) fix a problem that may already reside in the DWF? Just curious.

Can you share the DWF?

Glad it was a simple fix.
