I've opened up an existing brd file that I generated using OrCAD PCB Designer Professional v16.5. It appears that all of my parameters remained intact, however, the colors, transparency and brightness of the individual elements look different. Most of the differences aren't bad, they're just different.
The only problem I'm experiencing with this new color scheme is that my silk screen elements are almost completely invisible. You can't really see them unless you place your cursor over the silk screen element that you would like to see. I've even set the color of all of my silk screen elements to bright white in the Color192 screen and toyed with the transparency and shadow settings. The only way I can see the silk screen items is to supress all of the other elements and just enable the silk screen stuff. Even then, the color of the silk screen stuff is very muted and not very bright at all.
Has anyone else seen this or have an idea how to make the silk screen more visible or brighter?
Do you have the photoplot width set to something other then zero for the text size you are using?
Obvious questions.......... You have the silk layer for the ref des turned on and the color set to white or some other std color?
I have a board here that I started in 16.5 and finished in 16.6 and there were no issues with the silk viewing
