Symbol editor colors marked "auto" do not save

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?

 

Thanks,
