Unlegible dimensions in sketch in 3D environment Inventor Professional 2012

Unlegible dimensions in sketch in 3D environment Inventor Professional 2012

(OP)
Hi I'm not sure if this is the right forum here but I'd like to know if anyone else has this problem:

When sketching in the 3D environment (.ipt or .iam) the dimensions become totally unlegible when the part color is dark grey. This can be overcome by rotating my view a bit so that the lighting on my part changes and the part becomes lighter. Sometimes this is not an option as rotating the view will cause something else to obstruct the view.

I'm using Millennium Color scheme with Background Image "millenium.png", and would like to keep it that way.

Anytime a like color is over a like color expect that to happen..
You could use the Inventor Color Scheme editor (ICE) to change your dimension colors to something else while still keeping the rest of the Millenium color scheme

You might also try change to a different lighting style (but that will have more effects on other things too)
