Problem of color display

Postby revolver1941 » Tue Apr 26, 2016 8:19 am

Hi all,
There is a problem of color display of Geometric Primitives in part workbench.
As the first figure show, a line and a circle is built using the part workbench.

Then save the file after setting the Line Color.
The color of the line and circle turns into black when opening the file again as shown in the second figure. But the property value of Line Color remain unchanged.

Hello revol.

If i am not mistaken you are mixing two things up ...

Your circle is a Sketch element, therefor you should change the color of the sketcher elements(lines).
The Line Color refers to the color of the edges of solids.

Select the cube and change its line color to verify ...

Thanks for reply. I know what you mean. But even the cube also has this problem. I'm not sure if I am the only one having this problem because the 0.15 and 0.16 edition works OK. The files saved by 0.17 edition can be opened and displayed correctly by old editions. Only 0.17 edition has the problem. Can you have a try and tell me the result?

Create a new document and create a cube. Then set the Line Color. Save File and close FreeCAD.

Run FreeCAD again and open the saved file. The color of line turns in black although the property value has not changed.
