2d view colors

Post by kyeakel »

Is it possible to change the colors of the 2d view screen? I'd like to have black screen, bright green drawings, yellow grid dots, blue guidelines. I find it very hard to see the grid dots. An option to change the dots to graph paper would also be nice.

In a two sided job the ruler colours change so you can see which side you are on.

Kipp,
Windows 10 does have a Dark Theme, but that is not currently inherited by Aspire.
You can send your feature request to support@vectric.com.

The forum is mostly end-users, although team Vectric does drop in from time to time.

For those who wish to know how to activate the Dark theme in Windows 10:
To enable Dark Mode, head to Settings > Personalization > Colors. Scroll down and select the “Dark” option under the “Choose your app mode” section.
