Preview Plot Colors

I'm having trouble figuring out a plot color issue. I'll try to describe it as well as I can.


I currently have a parametric flow study set up to run over 20 different design points. When I run the parametric study, I always uncheck the 'Close Monitor' option for all design points in order to make it easier to just crop some final images (using the windows snipping tool) from each design point once it's finished. To make this work, I have a preview cut plot while the calculation is running.


I have a couple of colorblind coworkers where, in their cases, red = green and it's difficult for them to distinguish the traditional blue-to-red gradient (most plots I use are Mach number). I would like to switch this to a black-to-white or blue-to-white so that it's easier for them to read the plots.


I have gone into the Options setting of the Flow Simulation tool and changed the Palette colors to a blue-to-white scheme. It seems to work once the calculation is finished and the results are loaded, however it does not work during the calculation itself in the preview cut plot window - the color scheme is still blue-to-red.


Is there anyway to change the color scheme in the preview window during the calculation? If not, is there a relatively easy way to grab pictures from each design point once it's finished in the correct color palette?
