Have just upgraded to Rhino 7 and first thing I noticed was that the layout tabs at the bottom of the model do not change colour when active. Where do I change this ?
There is nothiing in Options/Appearance/colours that seem to change this
I searched “TAB” in the tools/options/advanced menu and found this:
But changing this seems to have no effect on the layout tabs ??
I also checked this in my old Rhno 6 (that I have kept) and for some reason when you change the colour in:
it ACTUALLY CHANGES THE BACKGROUND OF THE PROPERTIES WINDOW.
Back in Rhino 7 I checked is was the case in Rhino 7 by opening the “properties window”
When I changed the colour in [tools/Options/advanced/UiPaintColors.InactiveTabBackground]
Nothing happened ao I have no idea what changing the colour in
[tools/Options/advanced/UiPaintColors.InactiveTabBackground] does ??
So back to my original issue where are the “active” and “inactive” layout tab colours set in Rhinio 7??
The default colours for the layout tabs in Rhino 6 worked fine so why did this get changed in Rhino 7 ??
I also tried to import my Rhino 6 ini settings to Rhino 7 and this raised another issue where the LAYERS WINDOW background turned black so I could not read any of the text (that was also black).
Final issue Rhino 7 said a font was missing in windows and subsituted Arlal for all my notations and dimensions in a Rhino 6 model I opened in Rhino 7. This messed up all my detail layouts as text crossed into adjacent details.
I went into “annotation styles” and sure enough Rhino7 had changed all my fonts to Arial. BUT the font I originally had was listed so I had to change all my fonts manually to the listed font (which was Calibri).
I am glad I kept Rhino 6 as now with Rhino 7 I am getting held up sorting out weird changes that mean I have to spend time on them. At least I can use Rhino 6 producitvley while I try to sort out the issues in Rhino 7.
Clearly the move from Rhino 6 to Rhino 7 is going to be uphill so thanks Mcneel for not making this a smooth changeover.
