Setting for object outline seems to be changing! Not sure why.

Recommended Posts

Hey there! There was one thing that I absolutely hated about the earlier versions that was seemed to have been fixed until it just came back today! I like having a clean screen and in the easier versions you use to have a pink line surrounding a object that marked it was selected in some way. When you have more than one object on the screen that pink outline soon became VERY annoying. 

 

Until something beautiful happened. One day I updated the Application, and a nice little change was made. When you select and object, the pink outline would appear and when you clicked outside of that object the very same pink line would smoothly fade away. I LOVED it. It let you know that the object was selected and the moment you were done with the object it would slowly fade away. 

 

But for some reason I opened up a new file to start a new project and even when I now open older projects, the old style is now back. An ugly pink line that appears around your object and DOES NOT go away. I really loved the new version. It kept the screen really clean. A nice fade away was a perfect choice. Now all i see is a map of ugly lines and the screen gets cluttered really fast. 

 

Any help?

But you might want to show snapping candidates! The purple lines – I don’t know why so many users call them pink – should fade away all by themselves, so there is something wrong if they don’t.

@dutchshader Thank you so much! It worked. I now tap on a object and its hi-lighted pink but the moment I click outside the object they fade away in a beautiful animation.

It makes the screen so much cleaner and less hectic. Thank you once again!

I thought they were mauve.

 

Then again, my glasses could do with an update, apparently B|

My apologies! I guess I've never had any reason to choose explicitly for them to be turned on all the time.

I thought mauve was a shade of purple, but then there is also this to consider... xD

According to the list, Mauve (and our candidate lines) are a shade of Pink. I guess that means Alfred is wrong, they are pink xD

Purplish pink or pinkish purple.

 

 

Purplish pink, definitely.

 

As I said, they are pink, sorry Alfred :P

 

Anybody have a Pantone number for Purplish Pink?

I don't see Mauve in the chart that @R C-R posted. But then, I don't have your glasses! :P

Your list. OK, "chart"

 

How many ?  :o

 

No wonder everybody (else :P) gets it wrong.

 

At least it is all cleared up now. Pink, definitely.
