Customizable sketching colors

Customizable sketching colors

Self learning Inventor after 20 years on Solid Works

Question: How do you set up colors so that there is a big color difference between fully defined (constrained) and not fully defined elements in sketch ?

On my default set up the difference is hardly visible - not fully defined lines are black and fully defined very dark blue - it is very hard to distinguish. I've changed the color scheme to a better one with more contrast would like to know if it's able to be customized.

RE: Customizable sketching colors

In Inventor
-> file -> options -> color tab ->
then either pick a scheme that's right for you and has better color options
customize schemes -> sketch (there are color options here)
