Hi all,
I put copies of my autocad 'blocks' folders in the ProgeCAD 'library' folder. When I call them up in ALE, They show up in the windows as blank, white background and black background. How can I make them uniform? Is there a way to refresh them. They are .DWG files.

I created an entire library of blocks that I use in my everyday drawings. In Autocad, I used a program called BlockWerx which works like your ALE
program except that in the rectangles on the right, all the objects were depicted on a black background. In ALE, some are blank, some are on a white backgroud. Is there a way to keep them all on a black background, so I could see which block I'm choosing? I would attach a sample folder, but I don't know how!
