Use Background and Text Color on 2D Letterhead
You can set up Letterhead, to choose the items that should print around your floor plan, such as a company logo. The Use Background and Text Color on 2D Letterhead option saves your Background Color and/or Text Color choices to your Letterhead.
Think of the background as the color of the page that the floor plan will be printed on. You can choose a color, or choose the transparent option if you plan to place the floor plan on top of another image. In this example, we've used a Teal background color.
Sets the color of text such as room names, room sizes, text labels and furniture labels.
Block Arrow Fill Color
Sets the fill color of any block arrow you have added to your floor plan. In this example, we've used the standard Teal color. To learn how to add a block arrow, see Add an Entrance/Block Arrow.
Arrow and Line Color
Changes the color of outside measurements, Measurement Wizards lines, and helper lines as well as the outline of the block arrow. To learn more about how to add these types of helpers to a floor plan, see Add Helper Symbols to Your Project.

How to Set a Color
- On the 2D Floor Plan tab, locate the item whose color you want to set. For example, Furniture Fill Color.
- To the right of the item, click the Pencil. The color box appears.
- Under RGB , type a Hex color code, such as E0FFFF, or use the drop-down to choose a color.
Some items have a Transparent checkbox which you can click if you want the item to be transparent.
- Click OK. The 2D Floor Plans tab opens. You will see the hex code for the chosen color.
Tip: The hex code may have two additional digits at the end. In the example above, the 6 digit hex code E0FFFF has FF at the end. Every item that has a transparent option, will have an extra 2 digits, FF or 00.
- FF = transparent is OFF
- 00 = transparent is ON.
Note: When you download a file (jpg or PDF) which doesn’t support transparency, transparent furniture color will get the floor color; transparent floor color will get the background color. If all items are chosen to be transparent, all items will get the background color.
