I would like to change the color of directories in a model. Normally they are represented by a blue oval. I tried changing it to have a light purple fill color by right-clicking on it and selecting Display Properties. The moment the model is validated it reverts back to blue (even if I save the model first). How do I set the model to retain this color?

Hi Timothy - this sounds like NIM046033 - http://support.esri.com/en/bugs/nimbus/role/beta10_1/TklNMDQ2MDMz

It was found in Version 9.3.1 and was rejected by Development as a "known limit."  I would recommend going to http://ideas.arcgis.com to add this as an idea for future development.  Vote early - vote often...

Hope this helps.

Currently experiencing this in 10.4.1. Has this been resolved?

To my knowledge, no.  I found this link to assist with some explanation - https://support.esri.com/en/bugs/nimbus/TklNMDQ2MDMz

Fair enough - hopefully there has been some movement since Arc 9. Many thanks for your insight here Robert!
