How to import a custom colour palette into VW2019....

Recommended Posts

Trying to bring a custom colour palette in from VW2018 to VW2019. Have converted the source file to VW2019 but the customAnyone know how to import a custom colour palette doesn't seem to come across. Is this even possible or am I missing something obvious..are these colours managed by the Resource Manager somehow (I think not so?)


Thanks in advance for any help!

If they are saved palettes in the Color Palette Manager, you should be able to copy the xml files over from your user data folder...


C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\Vectorworks\2018\Libraries\Defaults\Color Palettes




C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\Vectorworks\2019\Libraries\Defaults\Color Palettes


Then open the Color Palette Manager in 2019 and checkmark them in the list to make them active

Now for the bad news; the colour palettes show up in the color palette manager, but sadly the custom colours don't display when selected.


If it's not showing up in the Attribute palette, did you checkmark your custom palette to make it active in the Palette Manager?
