    Default Crosshair auromatic color change

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I use a white crosshair on a black background. However, when I move over a lighter background such a raster image the crosshair stays white and cannot be seen. The change from white to black should be automatic. How can I fix this problem? I am using AutoCad 2012.

    Regards,
    jt

    You can change the colour of the crosshair its CONFIG Display I would set it to light grey you should be able to see it then on a white background, I have mine set to red.

    There is no option to have the color of the crosshairs change automatically depending on the color of the background it is crossing over. Doesn't matter what version of AutoCAD you are using.

    That is why my crosshairs are defaulted to the green/red colors of the UCS icon.
