config.pro problems


New member
I am triing to change my config.pro file to my liking, but everytime I do so, all my datum planes turn black and the default view changes from trimetric to front view. It makes it very hard to work that way. can someone help??

Thanks Dave


setup your colors the way you want and save the file. it will be syscol.scl

in config.pro set system_colors_file and point to this file. This will set your colors permanently.

set orientation to trimetric this will fix the default view.
