Toolpath Color

Postby oakes3 » Wed Jul 26, 2017 9:56 pm

Is there any way to set the toolpath color standard choices?

PLEASE could you allow custom setting, or at least one?

Currently the 3 (hex values) are 960000, 009600 and 000096

I use a dark brown (75,25,0) for nearly every design, and it takes so much time to select a toolpath, choose more colors, go to custom tab, type in the hex values, sometimes several times during a project.

Maybe in settings, you could allow them to be editable?

Many thanks,

David

It would be good if they could be set as defaults I agree.

One thing that might help you a bit now is to use a toolpath template as the toolpath colour is stored as part of them. I very rarely create a toolpath from scratch these days. I just load a template toolpath that fits what I'm doing and I know every setting is correct that way.

Thanks Adrian for the tip. I'll give the template method a try.

I've created around 8,000 files since Aspire first was launched and that adds up to around a day setting custom color at 10 seconds a pop.
Would be worth the price of an upgrade just for that!
