Color assignment in Allegro PCB Editor has been accomplished with either a class/subclass color assignment or a color assignment done with the highlight command. With designs becoming more complex, it's desirable to be able to assign colors, including custom colors to independent objects.
Database elements may be displayed using either the class/subclass color or a single color assigned to an element, also known as a custom color. To assign a custom color to an entire net or to its pins, vias, clines, shapes, or rats, you use the Nets grid. Assigning a custom color automatically enables the custom color state for that element as well, meaning that the custom color displays in the design canvas.
You can also define how the custom color displays the element using a combination of states — none, highlight or custom color state, or highlight plus custom color state — all of which may be set independently. Highlighting or custom colors are set or unset by right clicking and choosing Set Highlight State or Clear Highlight State, respectively in the color chip. If an object is highlighted the text for that object type will be in bold.
To prevent a custom color from displaying in both the Nets tree and the design, right click and choose Clear Custom Color. A color box without a color assigned to it has no custom color state. These custom color and highlighting states affect the display of the element as follows:

Could I ask that you contact our Cadence Customer Support team (and ask for an Allegro expert AE) so that we can help you with this? The colors should not be getting reset.
I like the feature, but I find cross probing to the schematic will reset the colors. Very annoying!
This should work just fine. I've Emailed you a movie on how to accomplish this and a sample .brd. Let me know.
I've used this assign color recently. But I'm wonder why I'm not able to see the color changed after assigning the color. I've checked on the color display, it shown the particle nets was already have the color assigned, the problem is I'm not able to view it. Thanks!
Glad you're using the benefits of this new capability.
Someone put a lot of thought into this feature, thanks for the good work. It's so much easier to use.
