in the Segmentation Editor, the blue-green color automatically suggested by Local Threshold (picture 1) is very similar default green color for a new segmentation (picture 2). When I press Ctrl+left mouse to add a suggested segment to the final segmentation, the difference between the two colors is hard to see for me (picture 3). To recognize if all parts of the my segmentation are added is difficult, because of the similarity of the both colors. A color other than green as default for new segments that does not resemble bluegreen would be more user friendly. Since I want to segment several hundred records, manually changing the default color green results in significant extra work.
How can I change the default color to green in 3d Slicer version 4.13?
The preview (“bluegreen”) color is generated automatically from the segment’s color by making it similar enough so that you know which segment you are dealing with, but different enough so that you can distinguish it from the segment color.
The simplest is to change the 0.2 value to something bigger, but you can also experiment with adjusting the saturation (colorHsv) and brightness (colorHsv) components as well.
