In the Create/Edit Wire Type dialog box there are two columns Wire Color and Size. When you fill in these columns, where are these stored?
The layers are set in the WD_M block and the Layer Name is linked via this block but I cannot seem to find where the Color and Size descriptions are kept.
The color and size descriptions are written to the layer name field based upon the Layer Name Format. There is no residual intelligence. In fact, after time, you may see the entries in the Color and Size field clear. It is a one-shot deal for creating the layer name, for those people who prefer not to simply type the layer name directly into the Layer Name field. Once the layer is created, changes to the Color and Size fields make no difference in the layer name.
It seems to me that a report can display color and size of the wires.
it is unfortunate that the "import wire types" function does not matter these two characteristics.
