V8 Layout Background

Is there anyway to change the Layout view window background color from white to black? I have only been able to find out how to change the Model view.

Thank you for any feed back

RE: V8 Layout Background


you'll do that the same way as you change the colour of your model. But make sure that you are in youre sheet when you change it. (Follow the following steps:)

- make sure that you are working in your sheet (NOT model)
- Press 'Settings' - 'Color Table'
- Right under you will see a rectangle with a 'B' in
- Dubbelklick on that
- choose another colour
- Press 'OK'
- Press 'Attach'
The colour of your sheet normally has changed.
