Color control when exporting to .dwg format

SOLVED

Re: Color control when exporting to .dwg format

Hi,

open Creo dialog, where you can mix Creo system colors (geometry, curves, background, and so on) and try to find out which system color is associated with your symbol.

According to this, the System Color is Intrinsic:

I tried:

map_color   intrinsic_color   7

but that didn't work.

Re: Color control when exporting to .dwg format

I did click on Color and change it to "Letter" and when it was exported, it became white

Now how do I edit the symbol in the library?

Re: Color control when exporting to .dwg format

Dale,

Intrinsic color tells you, that the symbol contains several entities and these single entities have different colors assigned.

To edit symbol definition:

  • open empty drawing
  • on Annotate tab, click Symbol > Symbol Gallery
  • in SYM GALLERY menu, click Redefine > Retrieve command
  • redefine the symbol
  • click Done to finish editing
  • click Write to save new symbol version ... save it into original location !!!

Intrinsic is just a button/indicator for the original color(s) the symbol was created with.

It should be 'default' but there's not enough GUI style QC.
