Sketcher: CursorCrosshairColor can't be modified for dimmensioning

Postby -alex- » Thu May 02, 2019 4:24 pm

Hi there,
Just want to report maybe a little bug about sketcher.
It concernes the "CursorCrosshairColor" parameter which allows to modify the color of the cursor crosshair while sketching, but not while dimensioning. In this last case the cursor remains white, so it's not convenient with a white background.
I'm just an end user, please could some develloper have a look on it?

@abdullah would you? About sketcher I'm thinking of you :roll:

Can't paste any picture of that because cursor crosshair is not on screenshot.

I mean to constrain by linear, radius or diameter distance.

Ok. Now I understand.

Please, put a bug report in the bug tracker for the Sketcher module so that I do not forget. Link this thread there.

The cursor does not change in the so called "Constraint creation continue mode", where you select first a constraint, and then subsequently all geometric elements which should receive such a constraint.
