A changed parameter is now set in BOLD, can it also have a custom COLOR?

Recommended Posts


I noticed that when you change a parameter it becomes bold, so that it stands out from the default values.
I was wondering if it is possible to also change the color of those parameters? So to quicker see what parameters you have changed.

Hi Yves, unfortunately I am not sure if I have an answer for you, but you may try to find it in the .hcs file

For example here, on windows:
C:\Program Files\Side Effects Software\Houdini 16.5.378\houdini\config\UIDark.hcs

You should probably create a copy here, on windows:

Here, I did not test to edit it:

Btw last year, I was trying to set red colour for this, and I was unsuccessful:

If multiple objects are selected and they have different values on a channel (e.g. different resolution on two cameras), then display the number as bold red. Now it is grey and hard to check up. I have been editing the .hcs but did not succeed.

I agree. I will really appreciate if anybody could help us.

Btw you may like this feature to highlight only the nondefault parms:



Great Tip, thank you!

Agreed that a custom color to stand out would be very helpful.
