Assign Color for Electrical Cables

You can assign a specific color for cables when editing wires or in a Cable Wire Library. The color is reflected on the cable in the cable part.

To define a color when editing wires, in the Edit Wires PropertyManager, click More Properties. In the Edit Attribues dialog box, double click a color under the SWColor column and select a color from the Color dialog box.

To define colors in an existing Cable Wire Library, click Tools > Routing Tools > Routing Library Manager and select Cable Wire Library Wizard.
