    IN WF3 dwg views can be displayed as shaded.
    Is there any way to globally turn this off?

    I frequently work in shaded mode when working on models
    and now that I'm in WF3, when I come back to my drawings,
    they are shaded.

    So that's added 2 picks, or 2 keystrokes
    for every time I go from model to dwg.

    Even if it was one pick, I'd like it to be automatic
    like it was in WF2.

    Any suggestions?

    The default setting for this in the detail file is "follow environment". So, if the model is shaded when you place the view, the drawing view will be also. If you set this option to something like "no hidden", the new views will, by default, not show shaded. I don't have a detail file handy to confirm the option name, but it's something like "display_in_adding_new_views".
