Change Layer Highlight Color on Windows

Recommended Posts

Looking for a little guidance here using Affinity Designer on Windows 10.  My issue is the highlight color used to indicate the active layer when the interface is in dark mode. That blue gets lost in the rest of the UI for me. It's just too close for my eye at least.


I checked the other forum topics, and I found other similar complaints from Mac users, but not from Windows 10 users. It appears that I don't have a way to change that highlight color, either through the program or through the OS. Or do I? Am I missing something?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi @rdpollard,

Welcome to the forums. 

Currently, there is no option to change the highlight colour. You can change it on mac, but it would be mac system preference rather than an app related one.

I've moved this to feature requests.

Thanks, @GabrielM. I really appreciate quick response. If you'd like me to write you up a proper user story for the feature request, just let me know. I'm happy to help.

All the best,
