I just checked in FreeCAD 0.17.13541. For the Preferences/Display/Part colors tab to appear, you need to first load the Part workbench; presumably any other workbench based on the Part module (PartDesign, Draft? Arch?) will produce the same effect.
Ah, just realized that from reading previous posts. Can't play with it where I am now.
This means that not only do individual workbenches possibly have their own preference pages, they also may add some of their preferences as a new tab in one of the "base" preferences. At least the base Display preference.
Looking at the image chrisb posted, it looks like mesh wb (assuming that's where the "Mesh View" tab originated), which doesn't have its own specific preference page, does add something to the base Display page.
How does one determine where preferences for a WB should appear? Is this something individual WB designers just choose? Or do things specific to a given WB belong on a WB specific page, and things that affect more than one WB belong on a base page?
Is anyone aware of additional tabs being added to base preference pages other than Display?
Does any workbench add preferences to any other wb specific page not its own?
