Turning highlighting on and off

You can improve overall program performance by turning highlighting off. When you select entities to modify, the program highlights them using a dashed linetype. This highlight disappears when you finish modifying the entities or when the entities are cleared. Sometimes highlighting entities can take a considerable amount of time.

To turn highlighting on and off
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Tools > Drawing Settings.
  3. Type highlight, press Enter, and then in the prompt box, choose On or Off.
  4. Click the Display tab.
  5. Under Change Settings For, click Display.
  6. Select or clear the Highlight Item When Selected check box.
  7. Click OK.
