    Titleblock CAD export colors

    Good afternoon friends!!!

    Stupid question ... how can "ask" Revit to export (an imported) Title block colors to CAD as they are shown in Revit?

    What I do is I create a new Title block family and I import a CAD titleblock there which looks perfect in Revit, but when I export it back to CAD for submission it all turns to one color either pink or black lines ...

    You can modify how revit exports to CAD layers in the 'ModifyDWG/DXF Export Setup' dialog when exporting DWG's....

    You can load your CAD layer standards from a .txt file
    [which are easy enough to find witha few searces for something along the lines of "revit export layer standards"]

      Thanks !!! Ok that works for me very good !!! But there is one big but .. . What I'm trying to accomplish is to confuse Revit to export colors of filled regions as they are in Revit Title block, because I have a Green logo and a magenta logo which in the exported DWG bleach all to some color specified in Title block layer, there is an option to detach the properties of lines (borders) of filled regions to export on independent layer with another color, however, I couldn't seem to find any way to make the filled region itself the color I want or to assign it the same overrides as it's border is.

        Your best option now may be to just change the layer properties in the DWG.

        Is your goal to make the colors display on screen or on a hardcopy [print/plot]?

          Yes it was my option before ... I need it on soft copy because hard copy is usually B/W and we additionally send soft copy to the clients because in my titleblock there is color legend for wall types.

            You may just be better off changing your filled region colors through Autocad layer properties, that way you can make sure your wall types and legend colors match exactly.
