generally graphic colors in 800xA works based on the workplace graphic colors pallets,

so if you want to change the faceplate BG then you have to change in all workplace graphic colors to avoid color clash if there are more workplace like(engineering,operator,plant explorer etc).

So be cautius while changing the graphic colors.

Note:after upgrade/update the graphic colors will rebound to default colors so keep a snap of RGB colors so that you can change after upgrade again

Hello Ranjith,

Yes, Its Possible ti Change the default Color for the Object highlight using System 800xA Configuraiton Console.

1. Open System 800xA Configuration Console.

2. Navigate to Apperance and Personilization.

3. Navigate to Apperance.

4. Navigate to Object Highlight.

5. Look for the Tab - Highlight Layout where you have an option to customize the color.
