Control Expert V14.1 FBD Editor Colour Settings

Does anyone know how to change the "Link" colour in the FBD editor?

 

Without being able to change the "Link" colour the background colour of the FBD editor cannot be darkened as you cannot see the "Links" properly.

At the bottom of the Tools menu you will find a Colors Setting option. Here you can change many of the colours used in the editor.

In your post you say that you cannot see the links properly. Could you provide a screenshot as by default, the links should be black on white and clearly visible.

I just tested the color settings and didn't find a way to change the colors of the link and the color of the blocks:2020-03-25_10-05-08.png

Thanks Eric,

 

It would appear that the colour settings feature has been poorly implemented, without proper consideration for its use and no end user testing.

 

It would be good if this feature could be properly implemented in future updates.

Richard,

 

As I stated in my original the issue is the lack of customisation available.

 

I've been testing the "Colour Settings" however, since there isn't an option to change the "Link" colour this limits what background colours can be used.

 

This issue extends to the fill, text & pin colour of the FBs themselves. If you're going to provide customisation you need to be able to customise everything

 

If you see the attached screenshot you will see that the links don't stand out enough when displayed on a dark background.

 

Overall, it would appear that the colour settings feature has been poorly implemented, without proper consideration for its use and no end user testing.

 

It would be good if this feature could be properly implemented in future updates.

I'd suggest that you raise this directly with your local Schneider Tech Support team.

This forum is less likely to see results than direct correspondence with Schneider.
