Summary0004056: missing sketcher preferences for unconstrained highlighting
DescriptionThe sketcher preferences already supports to specify various color settings. What is however missing is to specify the color that is used to highlight under-constrained sketch elements (when clicking on the degrees of freedom in the sketcher dialog.

Currently the color dark green is hardcoded but for complex sketches with constraints, carbon copies etc. it would be very helpful to specify its own color to highlight under-constrained elements.

@uwestoehr do you mind opening a forum thread to discuss and perhaps attract a developer to code this ? Thanks!

That color is actually "Edit/Preferences/Display/Colors/Enable selection highlighting" color. This is the color when you select anything in sketcher - either by clicking on it or though the DOF link. Maybe we need another color for Sketcher only?

Many thanks. Thus the bug report is invalid. I will document this feature now properly in the Wiki.
