Hey All, I am new to Allegro (been using Specctra forever) and am trying to figure out how to set up a default color scheme for my company. Some way (maybe the env file) that will globally set everyone's colors to something other than the default pink (15.2) or green (15.5). I have been able to do it locally by creating a script and re-running that. There has to be a better way. Thanks in advance. Matt Skogmo QSC Audio Products INC.
The color scheme is contained in a file lallegro.col. From within the board file, use the color and visibility table to set up the colors as you wish them to be. Then, click the arrow under Palette and select Write Local. This will create the lallegro.col file in your local env directory. You can then Read Local in any design to change to your color scheme.

MSkogmo, You can also same layer color info. by opening Allegro, and typing in "images". In the pop-up, put the name of your son to be saved file (or use one of the drop-down pre-labeled names) and click save. Then copy your file to the new design folder and restore it. The catch is, the layer names must match or the color won't get assigned. Scott
