Change color of selected vertex
Hi all,

I'm not a fan of yellow colors and I was wondering if there is a way to change the color of selected vertex to red instead of yellow. Searching for hours and googling for 'change color of selected vertices' does not brought me to any solution.

Is this not possible?

You can do that in the active tab under color settings (Windows >Settings/Preferences>Color Settings), in this case since there's already a red swatch you could just slide it over there.

Shame on me! Due to tons of threes I was not able to see the forest :-(

Thank you for your hint.

Cheers, Lecra
