Change font color in Modeltree

Change font color in Modeltree

In Creo 2 Parametric, if an item is broken, then the dependent KE's are highlighted in red. I want to change the color of the failed elements from red to other color. See the picture for better understanding.

Under Settings > System Colors I have no appropriate setting found. In config.pro there is a setting: model_tree_font. But if the setting is to help and what should I write exactly, I do not know.

I need it for my college. He does not recognize the red light. Please help if it is possible.


p.s. sorry for my english mistakes. It´s not my mother language.

Does anyone have any idea if this is possible?

If not, then it seems like a pretty big oversight. I imagine there are many colorblind people who would struggle with this. Do you have maintenance? If not, I am more than willing to open a case with PTC and see what they say.

We don't have maintenance.I would be very grateful if you write to the TCP. Thank you.

Currently there is no option to change the color for font in model tree.

Thank you for information.

Can we hope for it in future?

Is it possible to add settings for color blind people?

As of now we don't have any option, may enhance in future versions.

Tech support confirmed the same thing.

It is not possible to change the color of the failed components in the model tree. It can be considered as limitation of Creo Parametric, I would suggest you to file an Product Idea for this issue.

As of now we do not have any workaround for this issue however one can be to use Creo in resolve mode (use config option regen_failure_handling set to resolve_mode), this will open the assembly with failed components in resolve mode and will ask user to fix/resolve the failed component.

Sorry.

Viktor, while I cannot suggest something that will alter the failed component/features red font color, perhaps changing the background color behind that font will help your colleague see it more clearly.

That can be adjusted on Windows 7 computers by using the Control Panel > Appearance & Personalization > Personalization. Then select from one of the High Contrast Themes (or try other color combinations yourself using the 'Window Color' command).

Hopefully it helps a bit.

Ethan, thank you for your tipp. I will give it to my colleague.

Dear all,

thank you for your help and feedback. This is an interesting topic.

I hope that in future versions we can see an one solution for this
