layout instance color
Hey all having a blond moment on our tester machine... Where is the setting located to set the instance display color?
I know we can change it in the instance creation dialog box, but where is the default setting located? so I can set once and not have to tweak it every time...
Thank you,

RE:layout instance color
If I am understanding your question correctly you should be able to set the color (and other settings) you want during the instance creation dialog and that will become the default setting going forward, unless you change it again.

RE:layout instance color
Those settings should be in the CKT file. (I think) 

I have a custom Blank.ckt file that I start every job with and have all those settings set accordingly in there.

Subsiquently, you could have multiple CKT files setup with different settings for different kinds of projects, but mine are always the same.
