Re: [ferret_users] Defined colours, appear grey in ".ps files"

Hi Joshua,
Thank you for the example.  When I try your script with the current Ferret release, v6.67, it produces both postscript and gif images with the green line color that you have defined.  If you  update your Ferret installation, that will solve the problem.

Hello Ferret users,

When I plot something in a defined colour, using the command, PPL COLOR  , the ".ps file" does not show my defined colour. The ".ps file" shows only Ferret defined colours.
This problem is not seen in ".gif files."
I use FERRET v6.05 on     Linux(g77) 2.4.21-32 (Ubuntu).

The journal file is pasted below, and the ".gif" figure and ".ps" figure are attached.

Thanks for any insight.
