Assigning Colors to Another Pen
The table.pnt file enables you to reassign Creo Parametric colors to another pen to overwrite the default mapping. The color names should follow the syntax of the default color names. For details refer to the Default Creo Parametric System Colors topic in Related Links
If you change a default color using the System Appearance option, the Creo Parametric maintains the color_name that corresponds to entities that had their color changed. However, if you reassign an entity to another line style, this changes the associated color_name and Creo Parametric plots the entity as defined for that color name.
* Creo Parametric plots entities by their assigned colors. User-defined colors always map to Pen 1. If Pen 1 has a default pattern, thickness, and so on, the system reflects this default in the plot.
