  • Get the Red out of my Reports (Edit dimension colors)

    I have a small Annoyance.
    The graph colors on my report are colored, and Red is the chosen color for dims that are closest to nominal.
    That doesn’t make any dang sense, and my operators always have something to say about it.
    Why is Red ever put in the report, except to show out of tol?
    Anyhow, is there a setting somewhere where I can change my colors?

    Thank you

    And that's all I've got to say on this matter........

    Edit > Graphics Display window > Dimension Colors

    Specify the no of Tol zones you want, and apply a colour to each zone.

    Note: Unlike every other bit of software in the world, 'Default' saves your settings as the new default, it doesn't recall the defaults.

      If NinjaBadger's tip doesn't help, you might be a victim to the PC-DMIS version that used the Dimension colors backwards on the plus (or minus?) side, if I recall correctly. I don't remember exactly which version it was, but I seem to remember that it could be fixed by copying the Reporting folder from the previous version (make a backup first!). Or you could upgrade to a later version...

      But test Edit > Graphics Display window > Dimension Colors first, before you start thrashing your installation

        I though this thread was going to be about making parts to specification MILTFP41.

          No such thing as making parts to spec. Engineers just make a Rev change to the print to match the part. Thats what they are for

            You're supposed to ask, "What's spec MILTFP-41?"

              Thanks guys, I think it worked, but I’ll have to run some more programs to verify the results.
              As expected, the 0-12.5% of tolerance color zone was RED.
              will I have to change this for every program, or will the "Default" make this a global change?

              I do still get some results in the red though, I don’t think it was a total fix.

              Ok Josh, if Bio won’t ask, What is Spec# MILTFP-41?

                    Open up another program with results and refresh the report, see if the colors change.
