However, I have two sketches that I want to be "colored differently", because I ...
I took my example FreeCAD file in
renamed it, and attached it here. The difference in this attached file is that I changed the colors of the Sketches, one being colored red and another colored blue:
to simulate what the SheetMetal Workbench produces when the "Separate projection layers" option is selected. Now, if I select both of those sketch objects, and then use TechDraw's "Insert View in Page" button, the colors of the lines rendered into the TechDraw View are black, not red for one Sketch and not blue for the other Sketch, as I intend.
I do not believe I can revert back to using the "Insert a View of a Draft Workbench object":
due to my reading of:
And a failed reattempt into a new TechDraw Page I renamed to "Page from Insert a View of a Draft Workbench object":wandererfan wrote: ↑Thu Oct 24, 2019 1:48 pm...Lack of clarity on my part - you can create multiple sources for DraftView, but it creates 1 View per source object. NewView puts all selected objects in a single View.It did allow me to select two different sketch objects and didn't complain when I added it to the TechDraw Page.
The latter picture above showing that the colors are what I intend, but the placement is not. What I intend for the placement is from the "Page from Insert View in Page" like this:
But for the latter View, the colors are not what I intend, but the placement of the resulting lines in the View is correct.
Is there a way to have TechDraw (or whatever component) respect the coloration of the Sketch objects and not require me to manually change coloration in the TechDraw View (I know I can do that, and no I don't want to because it is redundant with what SheetMetal Workbench produces in the Sketch objects).
Thanks to everyone that has helped me so far get to this juncture!
