Toolpath display question

Just getting started in Cura, and I'm curious what the significance of the per layer colors are. When it shows a solid color (no beads) does that just indicate solid fill? Why different solid color triangles within a given layer?

Thanks!

    I'm not sure but I think it switches color every mm or so of filament which makes the colors come out kind of random. I think red is reserved for outer loops. Only the currently displayed upper 15 layers are shown proper width - layers lower than that show thin lines.

    Thin "solidly blue" lines seem to show moves and thin red lines are something else - hops maybe? Anyway the thin lines are where there is no extrusion (with exception of more than 15 layers below currently displayed layer).
