EasyStreet Color Scheme for 2013

Looking for the Easystreet color scheme for 2013.  I searched but could not find it here. 

 

Anyone?

Found the ICE.  Couldn't figure out how to copy the color scheme or take a color scheme from one version and get it into the current version.

 

Ended up just copying the .reg file and editing the first line to be "....Inventor\RegistryVersion17.0\System....".

I was trying to figure out where/how it puts the name in Inventor, but I could not find "Easystreet" on any of the keys.

 

I then ran the registery file and opened Inventor.  Easystreet shows up in the Tools>App options. Just through a quick look, everything seems to be right.  File is attached.

Hi,

 

You mean the millenium color. I can see it on my Inventor 2013. Please see attached. Let me know, if you are looking for something other.

 

Looking forward to your reply.

Vinod,

The Easystreet was a popular customized color scheme that has been passed around here on the forum for several years.  The Easystreet is just easier on my eyes compared to the Millenium. The part edges are different and the background is a little lighter in the Easystreet.

 

Here is a registery file for the Easystreet for Inventor 2012 if you are able to view it. And a couple screen shots of the same part with the two schemes.

 

I dont know about what everyone else runs, but all the users here prefer the Easystreet over the schemes that come with Inventor.

It runs straight from the exe file.

I believe easystreet was created by the late great Dennis Jeffery around about R10 or R11 because autodesk changed millenium into a colourscheme many users didnt like.  It was a copy of the previous millenium that he updated for each new release.  Alas he is not around to do this anymore, maybe Autodesk could add a new colour scheme called the Dennis Jeffery based on the original millenium.

 

This is just my understanding and may not be factually correct

I "think" the easystreet color scheme was actually created by Micheal Puschner.  Dennis just put it up on his site so everyone could get it.

 

RIP Dennis

Dennis was always the first person to reply pointing me to where it was...  I trained myself to use Winter Day now because I was getting tired of installing the easystreet on every computer i used...  its ok but not a patch on the original millenium or easystreet
