I was doing some work today in gh, creating a definition that is going to be used mainly by other users. I then found myself, once again, needing to set different color groups based on general rules for clarification purposes.
You see in this image, all sliders have a group, and all geometry to be baked is “on” in preview and has a blob group outline. Still I feel this is not enough, I wish I could automatically assign a different color to these two categories: Sliders and geometry to be baked.
This discussion here is quite old, but David provided a very handy script that changes the color based on the name of the group. But… for cases such as mine its not ideal. I wonder if something like this can be improved upon.
The idea is to be able to assign a different group color to components that:
Have preview set on
Have a blob, box or rectangle outline
Special components such as panels, sliders, containers, etc.
