One of our Revit “last 10%” complaints was always about the obtuse “halftone” toggle for visibility graphics and appearance settings. We pretty much assumed that it is literally 50% of whatever the original color is.
The thing is, even when we “ghosted” linework in AutoCrap and called it “halftone”, it was really about 65%, not 50%. 50% is just too darn light.
Apparently, the Revit guys, when they weren’t working on shiny new plastic-like icons, decided to add something practical to 2010. We can now control the halftone setting on a project basis.
If you go to MANAGE – SETTINGS you will see the new HALFTONE/UNDERLAY control.
This will bring up a beautiful little slider that lets you control exactly what the “half” in “halftone” means.
Slide up or slide down, whichever way you want to slide now, Revit lets you.
