How do I adjust the sign color display when opening, placing or pasting signs with the SignCAD MDL?
To control the colors used when an OpenRoads SignCAD sign file is open, placed or pasted using the SignCAD MDL, adjust the color table values in the <Shape Color Definition> section of the SignCADColor.def file to match the color table values used in MicroStation/OpenRoads Designer.
1) Open the SignCADColor.def file found in the C:\OpenRoads SignCAD folder in Notepad.
2) Adjust the color table numbers under the <Shape Color Definition> section of the SignCADColor.def file to match the Color Table numbers (ex: 239 = Black; 8 = White) and save your changes.
3) Close both OpenRoads SignCAD and MicroStation/OpenRoads Designer and then reopen them.
4) Use the SignCAD MDL to open, place or paste a sign from OpenRoads SignCAD into MicroStation/OpenRoads Designer. The sign colors should display correctly.
