At John Brock’s suggestion I am opening a fresh thread for this topic.
I cannot easily see the crosshairs against a grey field. When I attempt to change the color of the crosshair, the change will not happen.
Using Rhino 5.
Opened Properties, went to Appearance, then Colors. Scrolled down to the “crosshair” tier and changed it from null to Green. Okayed the change – but it won’t stick for some reason. On the screen the crosshair is barely visible, not Green. .
When I return to Appearance/color/Crosshair, it shows a null color, not green.
Tried it again with red. Same problem. The change is ignored.
Have I left something undone?
Related issue. In the Perspective and Top views the crosshair is especially hard to see because the actual crosshairs and the central dot are missing for some reason.
Many thanks for exploring this. Here is the menu panel I found in the file I downloaded as Cradle Color Change.
On the Appearance/Color/Crosshair menu (see screen grab) the color appears green, rather than pink. On the Rhino display, the crosshairs, which consist only of four compass quadrant pads, are white, i.e., colorless. No crosshairs, no centerpoint
Do you have “Crosshairs” checked in Options>Appearance? What you are describing is the normal cursor when a command is in progress - without crosshairs being enabled. That cursor color cannot be changed AFAIK.
while following this thread, It took some looking to find how to switch Crosshair on [on the Mac side]
Is there a way [macro perhaps] to toggle it [True / False ] so it can be set to a button?
The only checkbox I found is in Pref. > Advance
