selected part pale

Post by rikduk » Tue Dec 04, 2018 3:37 pm

Hello,
( I use sheetcam for plasma cutting)
When I select a part on the table display, the name of that part in the left hand parts list is highlighted light gray.
My problem is the gray is too light, and i have a hard time seeing it.
Is there a way to change the highlight color?
I've tried looking in application options, but i can't find it.

Thanks

Richard

SheetCam has no control over this. The colours are generated by Windows. You can change the colours in Windows but versions of Windows after Win8 don't give you a lot of control. These links may help:
Win10 https://mcmw.abilitynet.org.uk/windows- ... ng-colours
Win7,8 https://mcmw.abilitynet.org.uk/windows- ... ng-colours

Thank you Les, it's a lot better!

I've seen that question asked before, so I'll post my step by step for windows 7:
Please forgive me, I'm translating from french:
-In the control panel, go in Appearance and personalisation
-go to: modify transparency colors of windows.
-go to: advanced parameters
-in the drop down menu, select: windows
-change color 1 to what you want (i chose a light gray)

It's going to change the background color of the sheetcam menus, so the selected part in the left hand menu will now be in a white rectangle.
