We are using Autocad Electrical. They are using wipeout, a feature in Autocad. It does not display properly in edrawings. It also does not print properly. It comes out as a big black object. See attachment. Thank you.
Well not sure if you can edit the file in DraftSight and remove the wipeout but unless you remove it, you will get the same results.
BTW you mention you're using ACAD electrical, so can you edit the file in that?
Thank you for responding. In Draftsight it is called I believe "Block out". The settings are not the same as in Autocad. There are (3) settings in Autocad, 0, 1 or 2. The default is 1. So I would have to go in and change the settings in every drawing over the last 2 years. I have not been involved with Autocad until 2 months ago when they got rid of the Autocad guru. I will check if there is a way to do it globally. Thanks so much.
You can check if you can make a script (no idea on how to make one) and run that on drawings on need basis
I am going to the Autodesk forum to ask.
