Graphic Override - Appearing in layouts

Yvonne
Advocate
We've had a few projects where a graphic override has appeared on the layouts (our title block).
It seems to appear and disappear - on different users.

How can we fix this?

The drawings that you placed on the layouts should come from views that you have saved in the View Map.
These views have settings that include the Graphic Override to be used.
Make sure it is set to the correct GO in the view settings.

Hi Barry,

The views are correct. It seems to be a glitch as it's appearing on lines etc from the master layout

The layouts (and masters) do not have graphic overrides of their own.
Only the drawings (views) have the GOs as per their settings.

However, the elements in a master layout can appear a different colour if you have the option set in the Work Environment > On Screen Options, to use a uniform pen colour for master items on layouts.
This setting does not affect the printed output, it is just an on-screen option.


If that is not it maybe you can post a screen shot of the problem.

Yes, layouts don't have graphic overrides.

The issue we have is that there seems to be a glitch where everything on the layout appears to have a graphic override.

We have a graphic override which changes all lines to squiggly lines - this is the override which seems to appear on the layout...

OK, I wonder if it might be related to this problem from some time ago.

This is the final post on that topic.


Do you have the latest update for Archicad installed as it should have been fixed by now?
What version and build of Archicad are you using?
