I'm setting up new levels and a new Inroads XIN file to cover a new project requirements.
In both the level manager and the xin file I've set the colors to use the RGB numbers as required by the project specs.
When I process a survey field file, the colors do not come in using the RGB numbers, they revert to the basic colors.
An example is a tree, in the level manager and the xin symbology, a tree is set to use the rgb color 41,165,0 (dark green). When processed, the color comes out as the basic #2 green.
All the RGB mixed colors are ignored and come out as basic colors.
The file comes in on the correct levels but the colors are off.
Am I missing a setting somewhere?
I'm using MicroStation V8i V08.11.07.443, InRoads V 08.11.07.615 Select series 2.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I don't believe the XIN file supports the use of true color definitions. From what I remember it only takes color table entries 0-255, and -1 for bylevel. If you want to use true color definitions in your XIN set the ByLevel color to a true color definition in Level Manager, then specify -1 for the color number in the XIN file.
Thanks for the answer, Rod
Are you saying that instead of a color number in the XIN symbology, that I would need to just put -1 for all the colors?
Yes, Just enter a -1 for the color number in the XIN symbology definition.
I'll give it a try.
I think its the survey file issue, open the survey file and look at the colour table is it the same colour table your seed files use?
examine one of the object strings in the survey file what colour is it using rgb etc?
