Edit Background dialog

This pop-over aids customisation of main view backgrounds:

  • Color. A standard trio of colour controls allow setting of $MapBackgroundColor. This forms the main background colour of main views.
  • Pattern. A list of static patterns is used to set $MapBackgroundPattern.
  • Color. A standard trio of colour controls allow setting of $MapBackgroundColor2. This is used as the accent colour in the background if a pattern is set.
  • Fill. A texture list allows setting of $MapBackgroundFill, using a fill texture instead of a pattern or plain background.
  • Use Inherited settings. Restore the current background to document default settings.
  • Save Settings As Default. This does the reverse of the above and uses the current background settings to set them as the document default settings.
