    How To Change Clip Segment Highlight Color / Colour

    Hello

    Does anyone know how to change the highlight color / colour of Clip Segments in the timeline?

    I can see how to change the clip colours but not the highlight value.

    The current highlight colour is almost indistinguishable from the audio track segment colour.

    The highlight color is not accessible for changes. Sorry about that. It never has been.

    I'll have to change the default clip colour scheme to accommodate then.

    In 4.0.5:

    Go to: Settings > Interface (active) > Appearance,

    check "Timeline Selection",

    click on the color box to change color.

     

    In 5.0.2:

    Go to: Settings > Interface

    then choose one of six available colors.

    Yes, but that will not change the color of displaying a region marked in to out on the timeline, or selecting a segment in segment mode, which I believe is what the OP is referrring to.

    That will allow for changing color highlighting marked region on active tracks (in-out markers) and color hihglighting selected clips in segment mode (red and yellow arrows).

    Thank you! This solution still works. Never had this problem before (as the bishop said to the non-gender specific actor). Using MC 2018 now.
