 Outline configuration






Not used in v6, retained for legacy compatibility (deprecated).

Colour of the circle shown behind the Outline view note icons of prototype notes. Now deprecated for $PrototypeHighlightColor which is a clearer description of purpose.

The default is very light - if prototypes don't show a mark behind them try a darker value for this attribute. To avoid the mark showing, set the attribute the same as $MapBackgroundColor.

The default value of #cceecc is inherited from the Document Settings Outlines tab's Prototype highlight colour.
