    Note: When converting a CTB file into a MicroStation PowerDraft pen table, AutoCAD color numbers 1–254 are mapped to MicroStation PowerDraft colors 1–254. However, the CTB file has an additional assignment for AutoCAD color number 255. Since MicroStation PowerDraft users expect colors 0 and 7 to be pure white when working with DWG files, pen table processing ignores the CTB color 255 mapping, and instead makes pen map colors 0 and 7 the same (with output assignments taken from color 7).
