Imported DXF with colors
« on: June 06, 2020, 03:19:05 PM »
I searched for the answer, apologies if this a redundant question.

I have a DWG with colors saved as a DXF. After T2 imports it all of the lines are black. Opening the DXF with AutoCAD shows all of the colors. What am I doing wrong?

Obviously something wrong with my drawing. After posting this thread (with a little frustration) I made a new DWG with a red line and saved it as a DXF. The import worked fine and shows a red line. If I figure out what is wrong with the original file I will share.

The colors were assigned by layer, which means lines actually had no color assigned directly to them, defaulting to black. I did quick select by layer and assigned the appropriate color. Saved as  DXF and imported... perfect.

Hope this may help someone in the future.

Yes that's correct, it is the path color that is used and not a layer color as that just a display setting. If you ever need support just email me, you'll get a much faster response.
