I am at a loss to say why that did not work.

Choices and ColoursStd files are generated here, with StrongED 4.70a4. 

I installed the original !Draw mode in Defaults, renamed the mode to 
Draw then CTRL started StrongED. On saving Mode Choices the old Data 
Choices was overwritten with a new Text type Choices and a ColoursStd 
file was created. If StrongED was started normally, without CTRL, 
Choices and ColoursStd files were created in UserPrefs.

What version of StrongED is in use?
