Thicker display for selected edges

    Is it possible to adjust the thickness of selected edges of a part? I find it hard to see the edges I selected, or perhaps I'm just expecting it to be a bit thicker (used to other software).

    Can't find a setting in the software options to change this...

    No - but you can change the colour for selected items (in colour scheme), perhaps to something offering more contrast.

    Thanks. I've tried different colors, it's a bit better, but not perfect. Ideally I would like to see it as thick as a sketch entity.

    Can one put this in as a future option, assuming it is possible to code this?

    Compare for example the below two picture, that's what I would like. But OK, it is not possible, thanks.

    This has been logged as an enhancement request (also tied to some other changes that would interact with this behaviour). That is not a guarantee that it will happen - but it has not been rejected, and is on the list for possible inclusion at some future point.

    That's great to hear, I hope it makes it. Thanks for the feedback.

    High likelihood it will - as screens res up picking fine details becomes more challenging and the problem will only grow over time unless something is done.

    Thanks. Must say, refreshing to see the CEO of a company responding to forum posts!
