Appearance Gallery Black Boxes

I can no longer see the colored spheres in the appearance gallery when selecting the color of a part or feature. I've attached an image of what it looks like. It definitely makes it difficult to assign colors! Does anyone know how to fix this? I haven't changed anything on my graphics card or is this a setting in ProE?

RE: Appearance Gallery Black Boxes

I would restart Pro/E and if that doesn't work, reboot. That's what IT always tells me!2thumbsup


The Help for this program was created in Windows Help format, which depends on a feature that isn't included in this version of Windows.

Hi Guys,

Just spoken with my PTC supplier. Manage to solve the same issue as you. You have to change the config.pro
1. Go to File>Options>Configuration Editors
2. Go to color_windows
3. If the value is one_window, change it to all_windows
4. Click ok and save to your current config.pro
