Is there a way to change the default material colors displayed in the preview? It is difficult to distinguish between Ultimaker Tough PLA white and PVA natural when scrolling through the layers on large parts zoomed out to full view.

    I didn't answer this because I don't know the answer.  I saw this post a while back.


    But I'll answer a "different" question.


    Make sure you are in PREIVEW mode.  Just below and maybe to the left is an option "color scheme" which it sounds like you have set to "material color".  Try the other 3 options.  I almost always have it on "line type" which makes it VERY clear what is PLA and what is PVA material.
