The display of lights can be turned on and off in the drawing.
The display of lights can be controlled several ways. There are settings in the Options dialog box under the Drafting tab. The Lights Glyph Settings control the display of the light glyph in the drawing.
A light glyph is a graphic representation of a light. Point lights and spotlights can be displayed with a light glyph. Distant lights, such as sun light, are not displayed with a light glyph.
The representation of light glyphs in the plotted drawing is optional and can be controlled with the plot glyph property setting. The plot glyph property setting controls one light at a time. The plot glyph setting for a viewport affects the lights globally.
