  • Onscreen View Options are states of the program; enduring through whatever views you open up; they do not affect printing and output
View Settings

  • Model View Options - controls the level of detail and presence or absence of linework
  • Graphic Override - controls graphic appearance, allows modification of Fills, Pens and Surfaces for different purposes and contexts
  • Renovation Filter - determines which elements are shown (Existing, Demo and/or New) and whether they are shown with original settings or with an override (in combination with Graphic Override combinations)
