Controlling the Visibility of Shaded Sketch Planes

When you are editing a sketch in Shaded With Edges or Shaded mode, you can display the sketch plane as a shaded plane.

To turn the shaded sketch plane on or off:

  1. Click Options Tool_Options_Standard.gif on the Standard toolbar or click Tools > Options.
  2. Under System Options, select Sketch.
  3. Select Display plane when shaded.

    If the display is slow due to the shaded plane, it may be because of the Transparency options. With some graphics cards, the display speed improves if you use low transparency. To set a low transparency, click Tools > Options > System Options > Performance and clear High quality for normal view mode and High quality for dynamic view mode.
