I downloaded draftsight and I am having troubles using it. I am familiar with Autocad so I figured this would be a breeze. I got to work on it and I can't figure out how to draw with it. Nothing shows up on the screen but when I print preview it is there. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: New to draftsight

Check the options for the colour settings. You may be drawing black on black, or white on white.

RE: New to draftsight

Are the settings your talking about under Tools-options-system options-display-element colors? If so I have set that back to default and it still will not show my lines. I am at a loss on this. I have tried different line colors also.
