That would be a something you should be able to change in the preferences but at the moment I do not see an option for this either. I agree that it definitely be nice to have cause. I had to use a work around of creating a guide layer and draw out a pseudo guideline in the color I wanted and lock the layer but that doesn't really help me with the default snapping colors.

I might add customisation at some point.  But, I'd rather offer a number of set themes than full customisation as the colours for each of the guides and snapping have been chosen to complement each other.  For snapping they indicates which axis have been snapped, or if there is a direct snap.  These are different colours to those chosen for guides and margins.

I think that  is a reasonable offering in lieu of full-on customization. I think most of the issue people will have is when the grid blends into their own work and then at that point the grid is uneffective. I think more people could live with this solution if they have few setup choices to choose from. Thanks Ben.

Yea Ronnie, that's the problem I'm having. The light color blends in and is hard to see.

only "cheap" and temporary solution I can think of is create a layer called guide pick your stroke color of choice  maybe a bright blue and draw your guidelines with the pen tool. If you want to make a grid just create a second line and and power duplicate it. When your done lock the layer and proceed on drawing. litte more work but its a temporary solution that might be useful now for ya.
