Increasing Edge display weights?

Is there a way to increase the edge weights/color of a part/assembly?

 

To see what I mean I attached a screenshot of a simple cylinder with the view set to shading with edges. Yeah the edges are there, but I'd really like them to stand out more.

What color scheme are you running?  you could try changing to a different one and see if that help you, but I think thats about it.

 

Look in Tools>Application options, Display tab. Click on the Settings button here.  In the Display Appearance window, you can change the edges color under "Model Edges".

hmm, ok. I changed the color to black and it kind of helped, but it's still not as good as I would like it to be.

In the model edges, select one color, then change the color to something other than black.... try yellow.

 

Does that help?  No way that I know to make the edges "thicker".

I tried yellow, red, and a few others and to me black stands out the most. Too bad I can't increase the line display thickness :smileysad: I like the thickness it displays sketches with.
