Hi Edgers,

 

I need your help.

Basically, I want to set up my Background colour.

 

So far when I opening any files I am getting the Black background.

I would like to set it up to different colour.

 

I changed settings here:

The problem is - I am still getting the black background during opening the files.

 

Do you know how to fix this issue?

 

Thank you

Arek

Hi there @arekkul,

This is how it had been in Solid Edge, forever, where these settings are file specific.....from memory, what you'd need to do is run the open save tool, that updates to the current template.

I have never done this myself, so don't know the intricacies of how it works, but, there are older discussions on this topic where you should be able to find out more.

Nice suggestion @SeanCresswell to use the Open/Save macro that comes with Solid Edge for this commonly asked question.

This is what I get in SE2019. And it does seem persist between sessions.

@arekkul  Follow @JasonTitcomb advice if you are using a solid background color.  The solid background is user specific meaning it will apply to you only and any file you open which is set to use a solid background color.

 

If a file is set to use a gradient background, those are file specific and ignore the solid background color you have specified.  Not sure why they are treated differently but they are... I have ER 5243360 created asking that the gradient background be a user specific setting rather than file specific setting so that it matched the solid background setting.
