    Default Problem with emboss colour changes

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi All

    Hi have come across a strange phenomenon. I have embossed text onto a part face with an assigned colour of white (main part colour is black). That is all fine in the part model, and indeed when I use that part in a sub-assembly. But, when I use that sub-assembly in a larger top-level assembly the text is black (which doesn't show up too well on a black background ). I must be missing something in a setting but I can't, for the life of me, find it. As a test I brought another white-on-black embossed part into the same top-level assembly and that is absolutely fine.

    Help a poor confused dunderhead, please.

    Thanks

    Not really necessary since your Profile states Inventor 2012.

    In the future, if you could please be so kind as to avoid double posts it would be appreciated. It just makes it easier to follow the conversation if everyone is posting to the same (single) thread as opposed multiple threads with the same title. Thanks.
