Turn off Auto-Highlight in AQ Designer
As some of you have seen, in the AutoCAD products (2016) and in the 2016 AQ designer, you will find when you hover on an object there is an automatic highlight that starts and can be confusing with large complex drawings.
To change the setting so items will not highlight unless selected, go to the AutoCAD command line and type: “selectionpreview”
When the command is entered change the setting value from 1 to 0
This will remove the Auto Highlight.
