Check the Draw white background even in draft mode option to show the control description with white background also in draft mode. Use this option if you prefer to print your maps in draft mode.

ControlDescriptionBlockout.png

Select a course and click the Preview button. The course overprint now is transparent, but the white background of the control description is opaque and blocks out the orienteering map.


OCAD does not block out only the control description. Furthermore, OCAD blocks out all objects drawn with this opaque color used in the symbol 760.00 White background. By default it is the color number 203 White background.

Example: If you also like a framing of the control numbers in draft mode, select the symbol 703.000 Course: Control number, edit the symbol and change the color from 204 Purple transparent to 202 Purple. Click on the Framing tab, enter the new Line width (0.2mm) and change the Framing color to the opaque color 203 White background.


Close this dialog. The control numbers have now a white framing.
