[solved] Colors

Post by Emiel Bosch » Mon Sep 13, 2021 9:44 pm

Hi Q Artists,

I like to use colors in a drawing, both lines and coloring circles, triangles, squares etc.

Does anyone know of a good tutorial or tips to learn this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
in CAD it is common practice to organize entity attributes like color or line weight with layer. Set a layer up e.g. with the color red and assign every entity which has to be red to that layer etc. If you need to fill a shape like a rectangle or triangle with color you can use a solid hatch and assign it to the appropriated layer.

Here is a tutorial about working with layer:

If a thread is considered as "solved" please change the title of the first post to "[solved] Title...". Thanks!
