Flashing Colours are not Fully Supported on Citect Systems Running on Windows XP.  

Citect requires 256 colour mode for to provide the flashing colours within Citect's colour palette. Windows XP does not provide 256 colour setting through the Control Panel and flashing colours are therefore not supported under Windows XP.

However, as a temporary solution, the Windows shortcuts to all Citect applications can have their compatibility settings set to 256 colour compatibility mode.

CIT has confirmed this to be a problem in Citect for Windows version 5.00 to 5.41. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
