Running PADS VX.0 on Windows 7 64 bit machine.
When editing a symbol in symbol editor, I set all colors to "Automatic". I assume that when a user accesses the central library, the component will pick up that user's color scheme.
However, I have found that saving the symbol colors (graphics, pin & text) to "Automatic" seems to always revert back to Black. If I make the colors specific (i.e. pin color =red), that color will persist no matter what the color scheme in xDX Designer is. If I change it back to "Automatic", it reverts to Black regardless of what the color scheme defines.
What's going on? This is very frustrating as I have two CAD guys who have completely different color schemes and I want the symbols to auto adjust to their setup.
Any ideas? Is there a file I can manually edit?
Check your options in preferences, one option is to save all graphics attributes ( I can't recall the exact option off hand). This might be the root cause.
