generaly i like working with a white back ground. the problem i run into is being able to see it. every time i open a new file i need to select the sketch in the tree and right clip to pick multi color option. this get tiredsome ever time i need a sketch. Now working with 3D sketches, it seems to not have that option to change to multi color. Does anyone know a solution to this? I wish to be able to see my sketches while they are turned on.......
OK, my first thoughts were, that there should be a color option to set the color for inactive sketches too.
But no this isn't the case.
At least for ordered sketches You have a fixed color (grey) if in SingleColorMode for sketches
You can change the color settings for sketches and every snyc sketch rely on that.
On the other hand, I also have now set the background color to white but I'm able to see all sketches very well.
As seen in the above picture.
I have learned to really like the colors as a function of constraints. I have it set up so that the lines turn black when they are nailed down and blue if they are not. The goal becomes black and white. Once in a great while I will manually assign colors to sketch segments.
It's easiest on the eyes to have a gradient blue background (I like the 2000 blue). But many here prefer a white background for screen shots. As a compromise you may want to consider an off white or gradient off white.
Closed sketches are set to the Construction color set in Color Manager. Setting that to a darker color if using a light background resolves the issue for me. Note that 3D Sketch color is only controlled by that if using the "Use individual part styles" option of Color Manager. I have not firured out what controlls them in assembly using the "Use Solid Edge Options color settings" which does control 2D sketch geometry (may be a bug).
