Creo: Model Section Outline vs Drawing Text Colour - "Letter"

Creo: Model Section Outline vs Drawing Text Colour - "Letter"

Creo: Model Section Outline vs Drawing Text Colour - "Letter"


Is there any way to apply a different colour for model section outlines and drawing text?

They are both controlled by Options> System Appearance> Graphics> "Letter"

My issue is that my preference for drawings would be a dark background (black) with bright text (Neon Green). Something like AutoCAD.
Then my preference for the Model/ Assembly appearances are for dark outlines, as the default model colour is light grey.
The Neon Green text colour really does not stand out as a Section colour against the Grey of the Models....

The only way I know of is to manually do it. I don't remember the command but it's something like Line Font or Text Font. Change the colour in the dialog and then select all the hatches. It would be easier if PTC allowed colour assignment by layer. But i don't think you can.
