Color palette in Pattern Editor [Solved]

#1 Post by dfridley » 22 Oct 2010, 12:02

Hi all,

I have set the Color via the Schematic application to the Black Template.

Does this get applied to the other programs as well (i.e. pattern/component/pcb applications)?

For some reason my pattern editor is using the White color and I can't seem to find a way to change this to the Black color.

Anybody know how to change this to use the Black color scheme? :?:

Duane.

Seems to be a bug. Not sure how the colors got out of sync.

What I did to fix it... version of DipTrace 2.1.0.7:
- Uninstall
- Remove all lingering Novarm registry keys in registry (carefully...)
- Reinstall
- Select "OpenGL" for Graphics mode (View->Graphics Mode) in both Schematic and PCB Layout programs.
- Select "Black" template in both Schematic and PCB Layout programs.

The file to set the registry keys to the original defaults would probably have saved you some effort. That file was posted on a posting at http://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic ... istry#p588

It is not necessary to uninstall anything. Pattern editor uses the same palette as PCB Layout, so the way to change palette for patterns is changing it in PCB Layout. When PCB Layout was not used yet and its registry is empty, default white palette is applied.

Hum... I'm pretty sure I had used the PCB editor and had the colors set to Black but the Pattern editor was still using the White for some reason. Not sure how that can happen...

Probably operator error... maybe I didn't actually have the PCB editor colors set.
