Re: [nbos] Astro3 Update (Beta)

Found a possible problem.

When I reset the 'Program Preferences' set 'System Data Display Colors' located
under 'File' it resets to the original colors when the program is started later.
Going from one file to another the setting stay the same. But shut down the
program and restart and its back to the original settings. This seems to be the
only one messing up in this area.
