    Well, you will get used to it. I actually prefer it now. Much easier on the eyes.

    That said, if you want to have colors you can select a wall, right click, go to Override Graphics In View. Then choose By Category. This will open up the VG override dialogue box. Scroll down to walls and change the cut lines to whatever color you want. You can do this for any category, or a single element.

    Keep in mind that Revit is WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). There are no layers to control line weights, so changing everything to different colors will probably affect plotting. I'm not real sure since I leave mine black and white.

        I've responded to your other thread as well. Trust me, forget all things CAD and learn Revit. You won't regret it.

          you should look to Manage, Object style. this is the place to tune how objects looks for all the views. And never forget that CAD is only an electronic pencil, you deal now in Revit with Modeling. From Age of stone to Age of steel.

              :banghead: I should have said that instead. That's a how you change it globally. My way only changes it in that particular view. Which you may need one day, so remember it. :laugh:

                  If you still need to have colors, but don't want to mess up printing (which who would), you can make 2 view templates: a working view and a printing view. You can then change the course scale fill patterns for walls so you have colors in the working view. And then use overrides in the printing view so that everything looks the way it should when printed.
