How do I turn off the color in floor plan view so that my walls and other objects display in black and white?


The display of color on-screen can be toggled on and off in 3D by selecting View> Color .

In Home Designer 2014 and prior versions this tool was found in Tools> Display Settings> Color On/Off.

You can also print in color, or gray scale, using the Print dialog. Check the Print in Color box to print in color or clear the check box to print in grey scale.

Most black and white printers will print a grey scale approximation of the colors if Print in Color is selected.
