Null's color?

Hey guys,

is it possible to change null's color from green to something else? I can't seemed to find this option as the color swatch in the modifiers panel is greyed out and can't select it..

Go to Customize, Colors , in the Elements category, choose Objects and there you have Point Object

What kind of Null? Point helpers are very customisable and allow you to change them. Dummies are kind of old and not very customisable. You can't even change their size after creation. (Except probably through script). If you can use points instead that should work. You can change their appearance to look like boxes if you want.

Hey guys,

thanks for your replies! for some reason I was using dummies so far and didn't even realize that you can make point helper look like a box.
