Re: Color style migration problems - existing color style to appearance, how?

I'd suggest putting your entire Design Data folder in a central location & pointing to that from your project setting. Yes, set the InventorMaterialLibrary.adsklib file under the Materials folder to be read-only. Put your custom adsklib there too & set the permissions on that for only those who are 'supposed" to be making changes.

 

If you use vault you can go one step further & check in the entire Design Data folder to vault. Then if you need to make changes then you can check out the appropriate file(s), modify & them check them back in, so that those on disk are left read-only. Many customers currently do this with good success.

 

Thanks,
Chris

Wow, thank you so much for the tips and all your help. I feel grateful that
I was able to speak to an expert about all of this.

I have the project setup in much the way you describe, but placing those
files in the vault is such a good idea and I will included it as a
suggestion for the next project.

Truly, thank you for your time.
