Fading items in a plan

Recommended Posts

I cannot find a way to "screen" or "fade" items in a plan (or a layout).  For example, in my electrical plan I want everything except the electrical items and walls to be faded so the electrical items stand out.  How can I do that?

I don't know a simple, one click way to do this, although there may be.

 

In Layer Display Options, you may change color and line weight, which is what I did for the plan in the image. I left a few things with their original settings so they would show. 

 

You should be able to multi select items and change color for all at once.

 

In Chief Architect, I could create a unique layer set with these settings, and simply apply them as needed. With Pro, I believe, they will need to be changed as required, and cannot be saved.

Thanks Eric.  I never thought of just changing the colors all to grey.  I guess that is one of the reasons why Chief Architect costs more...
