Changing 'Point' colours

Changing 'Point' colours

Changing 'Point' colours

Is there a way on R7 to change the colour of the marker that is presented when say you are placing a 'Point,Hole centre'?, as I find the default colour a strain to see.
Any help much appreciated.

RE: Changing 'Point' colours

That is to say, without changing the Blue background setting........

RE: Changing 'Point' colours

Thanks Sean, that will come in useful, but it still hasn't let me change the colour of the points placed for holes (unless i'm missing something). I've tried all the options in the drop down menu but to no avail. Any further suggestions?

RE: Changing 'Point' colours

Do you mean sketch points (if so they change with the sketch color).  Do a quick test.  Draw a rectangle ina  sketch then place a hole center.  Now go to App Options and change the color scheme.  Notice how it changes colors.

If you mean workpoints (not in a sketch) then then only way to change them is to do a DLL resouce file hack and it's not something I can easily explain (nor for the faint of heart)
