Problem with the color of quad draw

Hi I'm having a problem with Maya's quad draw that you can't see well. Instead of being like Figure 1 we see it as Figure 2. How can I solve the problem? I contacted Acer support, my pc's brand, and they told me to contact you.

There's color settings in the Quadraw Tool that should allow you to change the color to your liking. Capture.JPG

 Even if I have modified something it is never like figure 1. I would like just like figure 1 (black borders and that net color). In my case there are no black borders and the polygons are seen in transparency

I am having the same exact problem in Maya 2018.  Did you ever find  solution?

If I remember well, I uninstalled and reinstalled because it was an issue of drivers. Let me know.

Extremely late, I know. But just in case.


The reason why Quad Draw's light blue instead of dark blue is a different rendering engine.

Go to Windows > Settings/Preferences > Preferences > Display > Viewport 2.0

and change it from Legacy (Could be OpenGL Legacy) to DirectX (Could be DirectX 11)

This should solve the issue.
