Is it possible to have view port specific overides (eg for colour)?

Welcome obe1,

Are you referring to viewport specific overide of default layer color?

The general characteristics of any paperspace viewport are changed by double-clicking on the viewport border entity (make sure that it is not on a hidden layer) - just like editing any other entity in progeCAD.

There are also some viewport specific commands like VPLAYER for controlling per-viewport layer visibility, I am just not sure exactly yet what kind of "overides" that you are looking for..

Thanks for the reply.

I have two options for a site layout that are quite busy and are xreffed into the main drawing. I am preparing a figure with four views. I wanted to show each in the normal state. I wanted to overlay them such that one was all blue and the other all red in order to show the common items and differences (in layout and foot print). Lastly I wanted to show a hybrid foot print (I dont require the xrefs for this view).
