    After creating views with the command "view -> color view save" can no longer delete them from the "panel visibility" list?

    thanks

    "color" and "art" files are an "auto-load" to the visibility drop-down from the Viewpath / artwork path when PCB Editor starts, you will need to move the files to another location, or delete them, and restart PCB Editor to get the views removed from the drop-down.

    Hi oldmouldy, thank you for reply.

    I know the system of auto.load and the various paht defined in the viewpath, but myu situaition is:

    - I don't have any file .coll in the location "C:/Cadence/SPB_16.6/share/local/pcb/views"

    - I have 5 files in the location "C:\SincronieGroove\Hardware_2\_DDLibrary\view" (my personal library) and I added the path in the viewpath

    When I open my project I found not five vievs in the panel view (beyond the films) but seven!

    Two views are duplicated (named top_view and bottom_view) , but the files .color are not double

    I think something happened while was saving the views without re-select the path via the browser button (the one with the three dots in the upper right of the "color view save" window

    When saving Views it defaults to the directory that Allegro is currently in. (shows directory path across the top of the Allegro window or type ECHO $CWD on the Allegro Command line to see your current working directory.)  My best guess is your VIEWPATH has  "."  in the list of paths which means your current working directory.

    You can type ECHO $VIEWPATH on the Allegro Command line to see what your VIEWPATH is set to.  You probably have the same named .color files in your current working directory  "."  as well as your personal library "C:\SincronieGroove\Hardware_2\_DDLibrary\view"

    Hope this helps,
    Mike Catrambone

    Fantastic mcatramb91 ! It's work!
    There was the two duplicate files in the allegro directory.

    Thank you very much!
