As you already know, we have three tract categories: sections (qq-sections, q4-sections),
allotments and custom shapes (rectangle, circle and shapes). For each of these categories, the
user can define their own color preferences. Changing these will change the colors for all
previously added tracts and all tracts that are added later.
To define new colors for categories, click "Project settings" in settings menu. The
"Project settings" window with three tabs will be displayed Figure 1.
Select the "Categories" tab. Notice the preview rectangle for every category based
on its current color and border settings.
Click "Edit" next to a category and the "Edit category" window will open
To change the color of the border, click on the "Border Color" and the color palette will be
displayed, select the color by clicking on the selected place on the palette or typing the HTML
color hex code. Do the same in the "Background Color" to change the background color. Move the
slider to change the width of the border, or change the size in the window by manually typing in
the setting or using the button at the end on the right side of the "Width" bar to toggle up
or down. Confirm changes by clicking "Modify" and you will then return to the "Categories"
tab in the "Project settings" window. Click "Save" to save the changes.
