    Default 2021 Issues

    I recently updated to C3D 2021 and am having some issues. One issue I'm having, background masks are showing up as solid black rectangles. They were working fine in the already existing drawing that I first encountered this. I guess I can lose those until I figure that out.
    Next, every drawing I open new or old has defaulted to "Display Plot Styles" to off. Not a huge deal, right? Except when you have a dwg that has 200 sheets that you have to manually switch the display mode on for every sheet.
    Is there a global system variable for this? Anyone else having these problems with 2021?
    Help......

    Are the sheets using a predefined page setup? If so, you can enable that in the page setup manager for that page setup.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    I you are not already using Named Pagesetups, this is the golden opportunity to get started and use them on all drawings. They are the best approach to hard copy that Autodesk ever came up with.
