CREO 2.0 -- Trouble with Automatically Loading .dmt Color Map File

CREO 2.0 -- Trouble with Automatically Loading .dmt Color Map File

thread554-198089: color library
CREO 2.0 will override file "config.pro" with the contents of the "current_session.pro" file.
Let us suppose everybody has a "config.pro" file in their working directory.

If there is no "current_session.pro" file, then all contents of "config.pro" file will stand.
If there is a "current_session.pro" file in addition to the "config.pro" file (usually in the same directory), all lines that match between the two config files will have the value specified in the "current_session.pro" file.

Meaning: if "setting_A VALUE_1" is specified in "config.pro", but "setting_A VALUE_2" is specified in "current_session.pro" file, at the start of CREO 2 setting_A will hold VALUE_2.

Both files should be in your current working directory (WD).
My WD got set up somehow in "C:\Users\Public\Documents" -- never bothered to change it from there after all...

The line to load the color .dmt file in the "current_session.pro" file is:

pro_colormap_path C:\Program Files\PTC\my_colors_01.dmt

Hope this helps,
