Newbie: Maintaining node & edge colors from NetworkX

I create a nx.MultiDiGraph and use networkx.drawing.nx_pydot.write_dot to get a dot file but I lose the colors from the original nx.MultiDiGraph.
Is there better write_dot or different path to dot that keeps the colors.
Thanks --Len

I think you should ask the NetworkX project; this is the Graphviz forum; NetworkX uses Graphviz but Graphviz doesn’t know anything about NetworkX.
