Faint outline of control perimeter


Hello again,

I just discovered (purley by mistake) that there is a very faint outline around some controls and this outline is only seen if the background grid is being used.

I’m not talking about when the control is in focus or clicked on.

So, is there some way to make this outline slightly darker?

It would save me some time and maybe others at well.



Hmm, I’m not sure what you mean here, Michael.

Can you take a screenshot of the outline for me?


Sure, Hope you can see it.


I see it, Michael, thank you. :slight_smile:

Is that the Text Area control? If so, you can change the border color in the property inspector:

If that’s the Text control, let me know, and we will dig deeper to figure out where that border is coming from!
