In the past you could only make the whole drawing show color or black/white. This limited the way that you could show your drawings.
Now with VectorWorks 2008 you can choose which viewports show color and which viewports show black/white. This will allow you to be much more flexible when you create drawings.
This ability also applies to design layer viewports. this will mean that you could have a site plan in color with a black/white design layer viewport of the house plan.
