Changing workspace background colour - how ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'd like to set a colour (not the default black) for the workspace background which is different to the document area, but I can't see how to do this.

Can anyone help please?

 

Cheers,

H.

You can't set a color. You can change the shade of gray using the Preferences for the User Interface. Adjust the Background Gray Level.

But that's about all you can do.

Thanks for your help. Yes, I saw & tried that, but it made no observable difference to the workspace background.

Maybe workspace colour is something Affinity might look into.

Cheers,

It should enable you to change it to pure white or pure black or any shade of grey between those two extremes.

If it is not doing that, make sure you have selected the correct slider. Note that there are two, one for artboard backgrounds & the other for documents that do not use artboards.

It has no immediate effect with no document open but you should be able to see it change in real-time if you create or have opened a document on screen


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.
