what do the colors in gambit mean
Hi, GAMBIT noob here.

I've been trying to figure out what all the colors mean but I can't find any resource on them. I see green, blue, purple in my model right now, can anyone explain those to me? Thanks in advance,

Green means Volume entity
Blue means Surface entitity (cyan)
Blue can also mean volume (in connectivity color-based modus--> icon next to examine mesh)
Purple? Never seen... but pink yes.
Pink color means your entity are connected (2 volumes connected --> interface should appear in pink)
It is explained in the online help
("Specify Color Mode) --> /users_guide/ug0304.htm#1091
