Right click on the drawing on the page and select Edit. If Use Custom Visibilities is checked try unchecking it. I have seen Overlays not show on Plan Sets when using custom visibilities.

Bill, that didn't work. Any other suggestions?

 

Thanks

I dunno

I dunno. I tried several things and I couldn't get the overlay to NOT show.

I also tried it on my laptop. Same results.

Bill, I submitted it to Tech Support, the visibility problem was due to me using a black background on my drawings. They said to change it back to white to print the Plan Set page.

 

Thanks

Black background

Glad you were able to get it sorted out. I wouldn't have thought about a black background being a problem. I can't use black backgrounds myself. The contrast between the background and the brighter colors burns my eyes. I've even turned down a ton of work in the past because they wanted it done with a black background and I just couldn't look at the screen for more than a few minutes at a time.

I'm the opposite the white background for me seems a lot brighter. I hope 2018 doesn't do that. I haven't received 2018 yet. I just wanted to post the fix just incase someone else has the same problem.

 

Thanks for your help
