system colors


New member
how do you permanently change the modeling window color? I've found where to change it, but don't know how to save it. Also, is there a button that allows you to switch to the 2001 color scheme?



Use your display settings to change the colours, then save the settings file somewhere useful.

Then, in the config.pro set the option, for example :

system_colors_file c:\syscol.scl

Next time you restart with that config.pro, you will use the background specified.

To get the 2001 colour scheme, I modified the blended background to blues & saved this as the default syscol...
