Highlight active Window for better distiction

Highlight active Window for better distiction

Hello,

for better visibility which window is currently active it would be an advantage to highlight the current active window instead of only writing it in the title bar.

I imagine a different color of the ribbon interface or a different background color in the graphics area.

It should be visible even if you don't look directly on the screen.

Best Regards

Jens Wagner

Hi Dale,

this is not what I was looking for.

What I meant is not to highlight a field but the whole window, so I can easily see if I'm currently working in an active window or not. Because when I run some mapkeys they do crazy things when I'm in an inactive window.

Thanks, Jens

Hi,

I'm also using Ctrl+A. But I'm working as CAD Support in a big company and about 20% of all Users (about 3200 Users of Pro/E in the Company where I'm working at) are not working like that and they requested that idea. I think it's a good idea which makes it easier for most non-daily users.

But Ctrl+A is a good hint.

Thanks, Jens
