XS_​DRAWING_​CHANGE_​HIGHLIGHT_​COLOR

Category in Advanced options dialog box: Drawing properties

Use this advanced option to change the highlight color of the automatic change symbols. Enter a numeric value or the name of the color.

The default color is magenta on screen and invisible when printing. Other colors are visible also when printing except index 152 (Invisible color).

You can enter any of the following color names: RED, DARK RED, ORANGE, DARK YELLOW, GREEN, DARK GREEN, BLUE, DARK BLUE, BLACK, GREY, DARK GREY, CYAN, DARK CYAN, and MAGENTA.

You can also enter colors as numeric values. You can enter a single color index value (such as 160 for the standard Tekla Structures red color) or a specific custom RGB color. For an RGB color, enter three numeric values separated by spaces (each value in the range 0 to 255). For example, for a specific shade of green, enter 0 220 50.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options database.
