The tool path colors are inherited from the method objects.

Re: tool path display color


Here is a journal that I made to do just that, it also includes other settings. You can setup it up as a button. You will have to change the file extension from .txt to .vb


It handles most if not all operation types and also includes methods. Just open the file with notepad and you can modify it to suit what works for you.

And if you want to set the Method view methods (rather than the operations), see attached.

rename to .VB
