    The plugin allows to color elements in the view by conditions (by category and/or parameters), to reset the coloring, and to add filters to the current template or view.

    The plugin's dialog box:


    There must be at least one working configuration for the plugin to start working. To create it, click on plus and then enter the name:


    The following tools are available for working with configurations:

    • pencil - edit the name of the selected configuration;
    • plus circle multiple outline - duplication the selected configuration;
    • delete - deleting the selected configuration;
    • downloadupload - import and export of configurations, respectively.

    To create a working configuration you need to add the conditions of its work. There are two operating modes:

    • Standard condition
    • By parameter values



    After adding a condition, you can specify both the category of elements to be colored (the left part of the condition) and the parameter (the right part of the condition) by which they will be colored.

    To do this, you must use the elements filter playlist edit.


    In the condition, the category and the parameter are optional, that is, they can be used together or separately.

    After entering an element category and its parameter, you can create new conditions for coloring elements. You can use the duplicator of the previous condition content copy for this purpose. The close button can be used to delete an existing condition. Use the color palette to select the desired coloring color.


    It is also possible to set the coloring area by successively clicking the corresponding button: cube - coloring surfaces and lines, cube outline - coloring only lines or cube variant - coloring only surfaces. 

    If several conditions for coloring elements are set, the individual condition can be moved in the list by dragging it with the left mouse button.


    In cases where there are a large number of values for a single parameter, you can use coloring by parameter value.

    Use the elements filter playlist edit to enter categories. After you fill in the categories, the parameter filter will become available.

    In the parameter filter, you can create only one condition for a single parameter. You can set multiple values for a parameter, separated by a comma.

    After entering a category and parameter filter, you can get a list of values that satisfy these conditions on the Get button:


    You can search for elements that satisfy the filter either from the whole project or from the current view:


    You can expand or collapse list, add a new value, or delete a value from the list using the corresponding buttons:


    If you press the palette button, you can set random colors for all values:


    At the bottom of the window is an option for the plugin mode, where:

    • Can override on the current view the coloring for elements according to the specified conditions
    • Restore the (original) override in the current view
    • Create View Filter - add filters to an existing view template (if one is set for the current view) or to the current view (if no template is defined for it)

    It is not possible to create a view filter for all parameters. If the filter cannot be created, an error window will be displayed

    When creating a view filter, the option to enable/disable the Shaded Visual style for the View (if possible) is available, as well as the ability to set the view filter name for standard conditions.
