Whenever I open inventor and open an .ipt window everything in it is completely black. I figured out how to change the color of the grid, but the cube in the top right corner is still completely black and when ever I drag my pointer to select a group of lines it is completely black. Also whenever I create a square and extrude it the object is completely black as well. How do I change the settings so that these thing are translucent or a different color?

I have attached a picture of what im trying to explain.

Either you have a graphics card/driver problem or you really messed with the color editor... Try going to tool..application options..colors tab and changing to a different color scheme... If that doesn't work try updating your graphics card driver.. And post what card and driver you are using..
