The new 2016 Quick Documents Tool Palette shows the sheet types with a white background making the sample layout very difficult to see. Can this be changed?Also, I tried adding some SP and MP processes from the Drawing Process Manager into the Quick Documents Tool Palette according to the FAQ. It didn't work. Could someone check to see if those steps are correct?Thank you.

Nothing yet. There is a rumor that Autodesk will release a service pack and it is supposed to contain a fix for the quick documents issue. As far as the background goes, it would be nice if it could have the same useful clarity as the Connection Vault. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

The process of adding or subtracting SP or MP processes from the Drawing Process Manager does work. But when I select the user icon all the graphics disappear. The categories on the left side navigation tabs and all the associated graphics in the example display box to the right. There isn't any text in the lower box either. Yes, I can work around the lack of pictures. But 2016 is supposed to be the new wave of GUI for CAD and I would have thought that the proper display of ALL the graphics would have been a priority. Especially when they worked just fine in 2015.1.Please let me know as soon as possible when this is fixed so that our company can move to 2016 without suffering a loss of productivity due to a poorly designed interface. It is difficult enough to make the transition to this new look and functionality. At the very least the components we depend on should be in good working order.Thank you.
