Thanks for the reply; yeah, I decided to go with ap214, which does various colors kind of nicely. As far as the ap203 export; what I usally do, is open them after I step them out, & they were opening in a nice blue, which kept the whole color scheme simply, yet the lines were pretty clear etc. I opened up a former step, before my computer was re-formatted, & it came out the grey as well. I'm thinking maybe it has to do with settings of how you view a step, possibly, more than the output colors, because of this.
Thanks, for input;
