Not having shapes fill with color

Not having shapes fill with color

Just installed 2017. While in sketch mode if I draw a circle, the shape fills in with grey color.
I'd like it to just show the outside line of the circle shape with no fill color. Is there a preference to turn off
that fill color. Thanks.

RE: Not having shapes fill with color

Thank you, Felix7502. I'm not sure I like the feature and would like to turn it off.
But thank you for pointing out the new feature.

RE: Not having shapes fill with color

If you read the next section about Extruding, I think it tells you how to turn it off. I'm still on SW2016, so I can't experiment. Sylvia

RE: Not having shapes fill with color

thanks, once again. I went to tools>sketch settings> shaded sketch contours.... and was able to turn off that
option by clicking on that. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, appreciate it.
