Djordje,
I can see benefits of using each method to achieve different results, all valid.
That is why I would like to have the choice to export/publish w/ a Ghost Story. To prove my point just look at the poll above :wink:
Thanks for all the suggestions to you all,

Jacek :)

Ghost Story is easier. Superimposed plans is more powerful. Choice is good. I vote yes.

Yes you are. Open Story Settings box, click on Options and you will be presented with a Color Wheel with a sliding Intensity/Saturation selecto, adjust until satisfied.. :wink:

Close the window and view your new Ghost Story :D

Cannot change the Ghost in ArchiCAD, or cannot change pens and colors of a plced drawing in PlotMaker?

If the first, Jacek answered.

If the second, make sure that your Attribute Update Rules (Right click, Drawing settings) are set to Custom for this drawing, and change away ...

HTH,
