Coloring Measurements

How Coloring Works

Color can be set globally for all measurements and annotations or can be defined for just measurements. Setting the global color will apply to all new measurements.

Measurements can be colored using one of the colors available in Trimble Connect for Browser’s 2D Viewer. The different available colors are shown on the right. To create a measurement with another color, simply choose the wanted color, and then create the annotation.

The last used color the measurements is remembered and saved as a default.

You can also change the color of an already existing measurement, by selecting the measurement and changing the color. Colors are saved in Views.

Changing the color of an existing annotation does change the default color setting.
