    Changing appearance of 6061 Alloy, how to get it back?

    Eric Salvo

      Attached are two screenshot pics. "6061-alloy-old" is from a panel in my design library that I created at least 5 or 6 years ago. "6061-alloy-recent" was drawn today and is obviously lighter. If I take an old model from my design library and change it to something else then back to 6061 Alloy, it shows the "recent" appearance. It's not a problem until I need to create a paper drawing for someone which happens occasionally. With the "recent" appearance, the shaded view looks like a wire frame view in the print and it is difficult to look at. The "old" appearance is much better for this purpose. I've tried custom appearances, but nothing seems to work nearly as well as the old 6061 Alloy. Does anyone know how I can get the old appearance back for parts that I draw now? Thanks for any replies.
