Tomas,

in ISO/DIN drawing environment default color of notes is driven by SYSTEM_EDGE_HIGH_COLOR system color.

Hi Tomas,

This is set in the system colours (syscol.scl) file. The variable you need is SYSTEM_LETTER_COLOR which by default is set to 100 100 0 (yellow).

Alternatively you can change it in Options → System Colors → Graphics → Letter, then either export to either modify the existing syscol file or create a new one.

Hope this helps.

Hi David, thank you for a quick answer.

i looked into the syscol file and the default color is set to yellow (that is what i need), but the color of new cereated note is blue. I have to go click on the color and pick the yellow one from user defined colours.

Try going into Manage Text Styles, modify the Default style and see if that is set to blue, then change it to yellow.

I don't know if those changes affect only the drawing you are working on, or to all drawings. If it is only the active drawing, you may have to change your template drawing to make the change permanent.

Thanks,
David

In any mode, go into File> Options > SYSTEM COLORS>Graphics>Letter and change there, or select DEFAULT.

REALLY FUNNY 🙂
