The selection end point indicators are faint in version 8.2.0. How do I change the color back to how it looks in version 8.1.3?

BC Framer version 8.2.0 has lightened the shade of three system color settings compared to version 8.1.3. (The defaults for new installs is correct in 8.2.1 and 8.2.2 with the latest updates applied.)
To restore these settings to the previous state or choose your own, in BC Framer go to File > Setup > Program Settings.
Then go to Settings > Color & Line Styles > Screen > Objects: System
Find these three settings to modify:

  • Selection, Closest Edge Line (Selected edges of Floor Containers and Area Loads.)
  • Selection, Closest End Line (Square box indicating the active end of member)
  • Selection, Closest End Point Line (End and middle grips for joists, beams and walls, etc.)

For each one of those System Objects, click on the drop down arrow to display the color properties.

Change the Line Color transparency to 75:
Set Line Weight to 2 or greater:


Change the Fill Color transparency to 170:

Click OK. Once your changes are complete, click OK out of the Program Settings dialog box.
