Subject: Displaying solid fills

You can reduce the time it takes to display or print a drawing by turning off the dis­play of solid fill. When solid fills are turned off, all filled entities, such as wide polylines and planes, display and print as outlines. When you turn solid fills on or off, you must redraw the drawing before the change is displayed.      

A check mark appears next to the Fill command  on the Settings menu when it is turned on.
