I want to change the background color used for a particular AutoCad project. How can this be acheived?


To change the background color in AutoCAD 2010:
  • Right click on the background > Option,
  • A window opens: display, color, 2D space object, background, then right click on the small square to change the color.
  • Click on Apply and Close!
