Convert a CATPart from R24 to R19 from "Tools-Utlity...-DownwardCompatibility"

I tried to convert a CATPart from R24 to R19 in Tools-Utlity...-DownwardCompatibility, I succeed but a problem appeared. Catia doesn't keeps the colors from R24 to R19 and I have a lot of reasons to keep them. Is possible to do that with some settings ???

I think it depends on how (or which elements) you've applied the colors to.

If you can't re-color things, try converting with STEP, or IGES instead of the CATIA utility.
