Pick Box colour and size

Pick Box colour and size


How do I adjust the colour and size of the pick box???

Thanks for your help


RE: Pick Box colour and size

Go to Tools - Options - System Options - Display - Element Colors - Model Crosshairs & Sheet Crosshairs to set the colors.
Go to Graphics Area - Pointer size - Set to 100 to get the crosshairs to fill the screen (if desired)
Go to Drafting Options - User Preferences - Entity Selection - Selection Box Size to set the size of the Pick Box.

RE: Pick Box colour and size

Once again, many thanks Sylvia

I managed the first two, but I cannot find the area to adjust the pick box size.

Can you give be directions from the tools, drop down, please.


RE: Pick Box colour and size

Hey BC,
Sylvia had all right information, but he messed up the order a little bit.

Go to Tools - Options - User Preferences - Drafting Options

Then it is one of these 4 locations, or a combination of all of them.

Display - Pointer Cues
Display - Gravity Box
Entity Selection - Selection Settings
Entity Selection - EGrips Size
