Artboard viewport background color customisation

Recommended Posts

Currently in Designer it's really annoying on my eyes when I'm using artboards, and the viewport frame turns from a nice dark grey to a (comparatively) glaring white.

 

My eyes might be a bit more sensitive than usual or whatever, but I find myself being distracted by the inconsistent and glaring viewport colour. It would be really useful if we could customise the background colour a bit - either from a few preset options or just using the colour selection tools.

 

I don't want to just use a rectangle is because it isn't infinite so when I zoom out (which I do often) I'd still get the white colour, and it doesn't save for new documents, so I'd need to make the rectangle all over again. It also covers the background of the empty areas in each artboard.

 

Thanks ;)

I'm not sure what you mean by the viewport color. You can control whether you're using the dark UI, or the light UI. It sounds like you might be using the dark UI. You can control the background gray level in the UI preferences. With a document open, you can open Preferences, then UI Preferences, then adjust the slider.
