How to set AutoCAD up to show a permanent plot preview
If you’ve been using AutoCAD for sometime, you may be used to seeing Paper space with a black background – just like Model space. You might even prefer it that way.
However, for some time now AutoCAD’s default has been to show Paper space as white, just like a real sheet of paper.
A white Paper space with colour geometry can seem a little odd (particularly if you use a yellow layer colour!). This guest post I recently wrote for Ellen Finkelstien’s AutoCAD tips Blog, shows you how to set your Paper space environment up to show your geometry with your plot style applied.
A simple tip, to give you a far more intuitive view of your drawing.
