To make sure that when you do the Lot Area Table and add it to the drawing, you actually need the table in the drawing that you are working in which is not always going to be the case. If you click on this link to download the drawing that has it in there, you can copy and paste it between drawings. Lot Area Table
The area table will look like this below
Once you have the Table in the drawing you are working in, you can now go and set your ranges in the Lot Area Table form.
You must make sure that you don't have any layers added, just colours. This is what the form looks like where you can fill out the ranges. (This required if the hatching doesnt work in the drawing).
If you click on the Save Ranges button, it will save the ranges you have added to a file with .range as the extension. (make sure you know where you saved it)
The PNG attached will show you how to edit the file (.range) to set your colours for each of your ranges. If you do the ranges first in the form and then save the ranges you will be able to just edit the colours if required.
It’s not allowed to have any layers set to it which is why i have them all on layer 0
If you want to set different layers, select a colour from the index colour panel as shown below
Then click on the True Colour Tab and it will show you the RGB colour down the bottom as shown
This is the colour that then goes into the .range file that you opened in notepad.
Use that range when adding the Lot Area Table and then the parcels will be coloured the way you want them
