How do you change color for solid edges in wireframe

I would like to see all the edges in solid geometry but I see that the color for edges when in wireframe is white which is a terrible contrast for a white background.

I've searched config options under display.  I've also searched all the other areas of the Options setup.

This must be easily done, but I have no clue where to find this.

Ah.

My wireframe follows the color the model is set to. Green solid equals green wireframe.

I don't know off hand if there is a setting for this.

Don,

I do have the Shaded Edge as a reasonable color but when you go into the Wireframe display style it is evident that the edges for all solid geometry are white.

Re: How do you change color for solid edges in wireframe

This is my mistake.  I am using a white colored solid.  If I use a different color the wireframe becomes that color.

I would prefer the edges be black, but at least I know I can control what I see.

Though, the thread says the question has been resolved but I feel we should explain in detail.

I faced the similar issue recently.  I selected the following steps and it worked 🙂 

>> Go to File>Option>Entity Display>Un-check "show colors assigned to model surface". See the snapshot attached.

Hello guys,

I know it's too late, but I just noticed that turning off "Anti-Aliasing" also gives a good edge display in "No Hidden" viewing mode.

Cheers
