Identifying objects on a layer using color override

You can display the contents of a selected layer as colored outlines. Changing to outlines — using color override — doesn't affect the objects' true appearance; it only affects the way they appear on-screen. This function is useful for identifying objects on different layers — for example, in a complex technical diagram — or even for changing the colors of the grid and guidelines.

You can use the Overrride Full-color View option to view full-color objects (1) as colored outlines (2). This can help you to distinguish between objects on different layers.
