Drawing views with part Color Lines

Is there a way to have the lines in drawing views be the same as the part colors instead of black (like MDT used to do)? Not rendered, 2d lines.


Also, when exporting to .dwg part color lines & the parts as blocks would be great. Ok, maybe I'm asking too much.

Look into the layers in the styles editor.  Set the colors to the layers you want and change the

line settings in the styles editor.

We do this for our centerlines that appear red on our drawings.
