I'm still evaluating 2024 and ONLY have one project in it so far.


I don't know whether this is peculiar to this project, Softplan 2024 generally, or just bad luck ...


A long long time ago I decided to draw on a white background, and since Softplan default colours were designed for a black background, I completely redesigned my default colour palette. So for example Softplans colour 15 is YELLOW and my colour 15 is ORANGE. My colours are optimized for a white background so are generally dark colours. I've posted them a few times in the long past in the forum.


However, at random Softplan 2024 appears to be changing my default colours back to Softplans defaults, which makes 2024 totally unusable for me ... again, bear in mind this is only one project so not that critical.


Has anyone else seen this phenomenon, or is it just me.

You can obviously see the difference in the 32 colour palettes ... it is quite pronounced .... and VERY VERY frustrating.


There are 10 types of people in this world ....... Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

The only issue I have is the cursor color changing back to green when I've got it set to dark gray. But this has been happening for several versions now but it is VERY frustrating!

Is the drawing part of a multi-drawing ?
Something like this has happened to me when the different drawings of a multi-drawing had different color set ups.. somehow, the various drawings were changing to match the others.. but I hadn't the wholesale color changes you do..
It's been a while, but that's how I remember it..

I am having the same issue. I contacted softplan and they said that they are aware and working on a fix.
