Hi, i hope this makes sense.

i'm importing illustrator files into AFX and in the .AI files there are always layers of just stroked black lines and shapes.

when they appear in the window off the project window they can't be seen. i assume that is because the default background color for that thumbnail window(i don't know what's its official name is) is Black and the element on the imported layer is also black.

i have been recoloring all the black in Illustrator before importing and was wondering if there was another way.

can the background color of this interface element be changed?

i attached a screenshot of the issue and hope it shows what i'm talking about.

thank you for any help.

Hi martoons, Sure there is a way. Click the hamburger menu of the Project panel and enable "Thumbnail Transparency Grid". Check out the screenshot for reference. Let us know if this is what you're looking for. Thanks, Nishu

And thank you for giving those 3 bars a name for me.

'Hamburger menu' is perfect.
