Lines disappears when mouse hovers over them.

Postby Kevin Golding » Wed Nov 23, 2011 2:32 am

Hi all

When the mouse pointer hovers over a line, the line changes colour to indicate that it is selected. The colour it changes to seems to default to some kind of grey. I have my background set to grey, which means the lines effectively disappear.

Can anyone tell me how to specify a different colour for the lines that are under the mouse cursor? I couldn't see anything in Edit->Application Preferences->Graphics View->Colors.

This highlight color is not a fixed color but a lighter / darker shade of the original entity color. A red line might be highlighted as brighter red or darker red.

I've opened a task for this issue at: ... ask_id=402
