Good afternoon all,
I use PCB Editor version 17.2. I select a shape to edit. Move my cursor over one edge to drag larger or smaller. When I do this the shape edge I am moving changes to black. How can I change this color as I use a black background and can not see the line as I am moving it. I can change the background color to a lighter color and see the line as I am moving it, but find a black background is easier on the eyes.
Ken, this sounds like that your temporary Highlight color is set to Black in your design. Go to display and choose "Color/Visibility" which willl open the color dialog. In the left pane click on "Display", in the right paneyou can change the colors for various elements.
Maybe that's it ?
Excellon1, thank you for the suggestion, unfortunately that is not it. I have it set to yellow. When I select the shape it highlights in yellow. Once I begin to drag the edge it turns to black.
Hi Ken, this seems very bizarre.
Here is a picture editing a shape in 16.6, you can see that when I drag the handles I get a red line to indicate where the shape is expected to be. The shape is on the top etch layer.If you don't see something similar post a picture of what you see at your end.
Thank you for the reply. I actually have an old CPU with 16.6. When I select the shape and drag it the line changes to red. On 17.2 it is black. So hopefully on the next update it will be fixed.
Hi Ken, I checked 17.2 ver SO42 that I have running on windows 10, same hardware as what I run 16.5 on and I can see the red handles on the shapes without issue.
By way of a suggestion, see if any video driver updates are available for your video card.. Updated drivers may fix things for you
