Tip of the Week: Changing the Background Color
2:48 pm  .   September 6, 2011  .   admin


Until now, the default color for your Model space background was black while Layout and the Block Editor had white backgrounds. The latest release of AutoCAD WS lets you choose the color you want for each background so now you can match up the look of AutoCAD WS with your copy of AutoCAD.

When we ran a poll back in May about which colors we should add, the leading alternative to black or white was gray. Now you can choose the precise shade of gray that suits you or any other color you prefer.

To change these you must first open any drawing in AutoCAD WS. Then, in the View tab, click the Select Background Color button. From here you can choose any of the backgrounds you want to change and select a color. You can choose from one of the available colors or enter RGB values for a different color.

For now you can only change the background color from within the web version of AutoCAD WS. Once you have changed the background color, your change will be reflected for every one of the drawings you open in AutoCAD WS on any platform. That means you can change the background to your preferred color on your PC and you will see the same background when you open any of the drawings in your online account from your iPhone or Android phone.
