WMFBKGND to 0, which makes the background color transparent.
A value of 0, the default, swaps foreground and background colors

so that the foreground color is lighter than the background color. Discontinued system variables
Table E-5 shows system variables that have been discontinued along with available
alternatives. Table E-5
Discontinued System Variable in AutoCAD 2002

Table E-6 lists some changed system variables. Table E-6
Changed System Variables in AutoCAD 2002
System Variable Change DIMASSOC Supports AutoCAD 2002’s new associative dimensions. System variables often used on the command line

might want to type on the command line, and thus you should know them by name.
Tables E-7 through E-14 list system variables by function so you can find them even
if you don’t know their names. Table E-7
System Variables for 3D Drawing
System Variable Description COMPASS Turns the compass, a 3D orbit aid, on and off in the current floating
viewport. DISPSILH Turns on and off the display of silhouette curves of 3D objects in
wireframe display. FACETRES Sets the smoothness of 3D shaded and rendered objects and objects
with hidden lines removed. HALOGAP Specifies the percentage of an inch to shorten a haloed line — a line in
a 3D model that would otherwise be hidden using the HIDE
command. Haloed lines are shortened to set them off from unhidden
lines and display only when you use the HIDE command or the Hide
option of SHADEMODE. Does not apply to the lines that create the
back (hidden) s...
