Changing default image/pixel layer bar from blue to another color

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to change the default color of blue in the layer/image/pixel adjustment on the right.I have seen this displayed as a brown color in some Affinity videos,or is this only applicable to OS computers and not on Windows?

Not at the moment, that is the colour to indicate selection of the layer. If you take a screenshot of the layers panel with ta layer selected and invert the colours it will display as a rich caramel colour. (in the image the right example is just a colour inverted duplicate of the left image)

What you are seeing in the videos is probably the result of the system-wide highlight color being set to brown in System Preferences > General on a Mac, like this:

I do not know if there is anything similar in Windows.

My lateral thinking is having a rest today lol!
