    How do you change the fx pen color

    So Iím adding some fx effects with FGU to some maps (water and clouds) but when I hold down the alt key and trace the area to be masked the traced line is black. The black is a PITA to see against a dark background. How do you change the color of the pen line being traced? Iím sure itís gotta be an easy fix but I just havenít found it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Pen color is the dice color, change the dice color

    Thanks Nylanfs. Yep I tried that with no success. I had changed the dice color from purple, to red, to green and the pen color stayed black when holding down the alt key and trying to trace the area for the fx's. The fx took the desired effect but the area being traced is really hard to see against a dark background... Its doable but a pain to get it where the line should be.

    As far as I know there's no way to change the colour of the pen when tracing an effects layer. It's always red for me and doesn't appear to be influenced by dice colour.
    If you need to contact customer support or if there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea here http://fgapp.idea.informer.com/

    Thank you Zacchaeus. That was my thought also. I didnít think you could change the pen color. When doing LOS the pen colors are true to the app with red for walls and green for terrain so I assumed that the pen would be red for fx lines. Mine is black so I need to investigate some more. Iím going to switch over to my Wacom pad and see if that makes any difference.

    I just checked this locally; and the FX masking overlay shows as red or blue for me when editing mask; depending on whether I'm adding or removing. I couldn't get it to change by user color.
