Mechanica Text Color

Mechanica Text Color

Mechanica Text Color

I am running an analysis in Mechanica. I have my background set to white so that I can better copy the images into a presentation. The problem with this is that Mechanica uses white as a text color (!?!) Is there a way to change the color of the text so I can see it against a white background?

RE: Mechanica Text Color

Probably better off putting this in the PTC:Vreo Simulate (Pro/E Mechanica) forum. However, knowing PTC, there is probably a way to change the text colors, probably on a menu somewhere near where you changed the background color.

As you can tell from the three "probablies" in that statement, I don't have much experience with Mechanica despite ~25 years with Pro/E.


The Help for this program was created in Windows Help format, which depends on a feature that isn't included in this version of Windows.

RE: Mechanica Text Color

Creo uses black text on a white background, so this must be Wildfire. It's been a while, but I was able to change it in Wildfire. If I remember right, you can change it in your system colors, by changing the text label color. I believe there was also a "black on white" option.
