    Fill pattern don't go back, why?

    Hi all, I have a simple question?, the fill patterns (filled regions) cannot be set to back in any way? , I need to see the pattern but I even need to see the objects below, Is it possible?, how?, tnx in advance.

    Couldn't you just set the fill pattern to transparent instead of opaque?

      Annotation objects will always display on top of model objects, but you should be able to set the draw order relative to other annotation. Have you tried making the pattern transparent? That will let other objects read through the pattern.

        hi Andre, No, a transparent SOLID fill pattern don't show anything, Isn't useful to this case, the only way I found is to set any fill pattern different to SOLID, but, that's not the idea, we need to show a floor plan within solids instead other patterns, so that's my deal, jeje, tnx for your replies.

          Sure it does. I use it all the time, unless I'm misunderstanding you.

          Do you need something like the attached image? The gray areas are a solid fill set to transparent, then I changed the color to a medium gray. Just be careful when you plot. You need to have it set to color instead of black and white. If you don't, it will plot solid black. Same thing goes when you plot it from a DWF, it needs to be set to color.

          Also, when using the arrange tool, you can only select one thing at a time. If you select multiple things, the tool isn't available. Thank God they fixed that in 2014 (from what I've heard).

            hi dzatto, you are right in part since I can see the fill pattern transparent in some views, so weird no? :crazy:, I believe
            that's
            a kind of view template issue since I re-duplicate the same view and this time it work's fine , I think that I found the problem but do not know where I should seek, jejeje, best regards.
