Just simply click on 'view' --> 'displqy settings' --> 'system colors' --> 'scheme'.

Chosse now the representation that you want.

Kind regards,

I'm not it's in WF2, but in Unigraphics you can set white background on the fly while making a jpeg.
I wish Pro/E could do this.


we have a few mapkeys to do quick "background changes", eg:

mapkey bgw @MAPKEY_NAMEBackground White;@MAPKEY_LABELBackground White;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Select `main_dlg_cur` `MenuBar1`1 `View`;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Close `main_dlg_cur` `MenuBar1`;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Select `main_dlg_cur` `View.cb_view_advanced`;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Close `main_dlg_cur` `View.cb_view_advanced`;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `main_dlg_cur` `psh_util_colors_sys`;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Select `color_scheme` `MenuBar2`1 `MenuScheme`;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Close `color_scheme` `MenuBar2`;~ Activate `color_scheme` `Scheme2`;\

mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `color_scheme` `OK`;

Including: white / blue / initial

They're easy to set up - just record yourself making the necessary changes, then save in your config.pro
