Hello, I have been playing about with system colours, but I can't figure out how to make the changes I want stick. I use pre-wildfire colours (who doesn't?), but I want to have the references highlighted in a colour defined by me when I do RMB, Edit References. Currently, the references highlight in the same colour as datum curves appear, so it is very hard to spot them, especially if one of them happens to be a curve. So I went into system colors and changed references under the geometry tab. Trouble is, I have to uncheck the use pre-wildfire scheme before I can change it. So I saved the current scheme as a syscol.scl file. OK, now I can load up the system colours I desire, except: I can't see how to specify the colour for references in this file.
Pro/e Help was my first port of call, but, as usual, Pro/E Help doesn't really
What is the secret? Am I just making heavy weather of it? It has been a long week...
Further to my earlier question on this subject, I don't think I made myself very clear. Sorry. I know how to get Pro/E to read in a syscol.scl file, I just don't know how to set the colours in that file to what is basically all pre-wildfire colours with the exception of the datum references that are highlighted when I RMB, Edit References. Those, I want to be a vile orange colour (or anything else that actually stands out instead of blending in with everything else). Is there a way to specify that particular colour/menu pick combination? If so, how?
The help seems to imply that a total of 11 different colours can be defined in the file, each corresponding to certain types of features, geometry, etc. I can't seem to correlate any of these to the colour of a reference when it is highlighted using RMB, Edit references.
Any assistance would be gratefully received, as usual.
