SolidWorks Apperances in PhotoView 360?

Where is the correct place to set the appearance in SolidWorks so that when the file is open is PhotoView 360 it is using the SolidWorks appearance?

I have opened files that were first drawn in 2008 in PhotoView and all of the appearances are the same as when opened in SolidWorks 2009 but when I change one of the appearances is SolidWorks and save the file and then open it in PhotoView the appearances will remain the same as before I changed them. I can also create new files and change the appearances in SolidWorks but when opened in PhotoView they are grey. Both RealView and PhotoWorks render correctly. I do not want to set all the appearances in PhotoView because the assembly has thousands of parts.
