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,

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
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
