  1. Default Selection Tool, Hard to see selected text,want to change color of tool

    I am trying to select multiple lines of text. When I select text, the border of the selection tool is a fine yellow border. I would like to darken the color so I can see better what text I'm selecting.

    I have looked in the preferences I haven't found anything yet that does this.

    Illustrator CS3

    Thanks

    Howard,

    DoubleClick the Layer in the Layers Palette and change the colour in the pop up window.

    Thanks, I forgot that one. Thought that that changed the canvas color
    for that layer. Yeah now I remember the tool box buttons are mostly used for the canvas.

    BTW: How do you view the Forum. Browser or through some RSS reader etc... I'm trying to figure out the best way of keeping track of forums and contributing. Right now I have been just using the brower.

    You are welcome, Howard.

    I for one use the browser, and I save/update many entire threads to my archive as complete web pages. I use the flagging to keep an eye on new threads/posts. And Search is your friend, although it only works through in the forum, not the individual threads; hopefully that will change for the better.
