When I configure the color assignments of my board, I lose the settings each time I turn on global visibility. Is there a way I can create and save a view in PCB Editor that isn't lost with global visibility?
Your color assignments will remain intact after your create and apply a color view. The steps that follow explain how you can create and reopen a customized color view after color assignments are configured as desired.
- Select the menu items: Display > View > Color View Save to open the Color Views dialog.
- Enter a name for your new view.
Note: By default the view-configuration file has the .color extension and is saved in the same directory as your project files. However, if you want to save your view-configuration file in a different directory that can be shared, click the ellipsis button (three dots) and browse to select the directory where you want to save the *.color file.
Select the Complete radio button. If you want to preserve the zoom level, place a check mark in the Preserve zoom level check box.
Click the Save and Close buttons.
You can quickly redisplay your view by opening the Visibility tab (accessed from the Display > Windows > Visibility menu) and clicking the View arrow to display the drop-list menu. Select your view name from the drop-list menu.
Your color settings will display whether the global visibility is on or off.
