Drawings and Images


New member
When I have an image in model space and when I draw over it in layout space the is always on top of the object. I set the image transparency on and tried to set the viewport to be in the back {image} using DRAWORDER and the object to be in front, but it is not working for me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Can check whether in your plot setting for plotting paperspace last is turned on.
Hope this solves your problem.

While in Model Space set your image in draw order to the back.

Then on the command line type IMAGEFRAME, toggle off, this turn the frame off locking it in postion. Remember to turn it back on if you want to move or resize the image.

Also make sure the image itself is not on the defpoints layer, the defpoints layer NEVER prints. Hope this helps.
