how to change the colors of the edges of the notes in creo 3.0 ?

Hello

we are using creo 3.0 since 2 week, and we have a problem with the colors of the edges of the notes in creo 3.0.

Because our font in drawing mode is black and the color of edges of the notes are black too. And it's hard to grab and move the note on the drawing.

we do not find the system option to change, for résolving this problem

Can you help us ?

You can have different colors on the screen than your prints.  You can do this in a pen table and probably in other configuration options.

I am not certain I understand "edges" unless you are talking about the highlighted note box.

The easiest way to test this is to use a local pen table named "table.pen" (ASCII).  Local means the file exits in your working folder.  Check the pen table option in the print options.  by default, it will find the local file.  If this works out well for you, you can also configure a common location for a manageable table.pen file with different names.  This takes a little more work that is required to confirm this works for you.

I use pens 4 through 8 to tell me if something is wrong.  That is why they are set so thick.

This allows me to use whatever color schema I want but all plots will be consistent.

Content in my pen table: ! = comment line;  Color is the plot color (my use-case: file>save-as>export>PDF>options)
