Changing the Paper Space Background Color June 13, 2009

Posted by advsurvey in CAD Skills.

Have you ever wanted to change the background color in paper space?  I’m referring to the gray area outside of the paper border.  Suppose you wanted the entire background to be black, just like model space.  Here is how you can change it.


Type OPTIONS on the command line to get to the Options dialog box.

Choose the Display Tab


Clear the check box next to Display paper background (This is the key to it all)


Choose the Colors Button


Under Context: choose Sheet / Layout; Interface element: dropdown list choose Uniform background; Color: dropdown list choose Black 

Go all the way back the the command line by picking  the Apply & Close button and the OK button.
