The system defaults all elements to black text on a white background. The decision to color code elements is for each team; and because the colors are team-wide, each user should not color code elements based on their personal preference. For example, if someone is programming in “night mode,” they may make the font white - and then the font will not be visible in “light mode.”
A team may default all elements of a particular type to a certain color scheme by going to SETTINGS → ELEMENT TYPES.
The system default colors are:
- Green: current element(s) selected
- Orange: element is selected as “changes every game”
- Yellow: element is selected as “not ready”
- Purple: element is selected as “notify”
If a team is going to color code elements, avoid the system default colors.
Additionally, individual elements can be color coded separate from any system default color scheme. To do this, click on the element to open it, and in the lower left hand side, click on the … button.
