I bought your Modeling for Vue series and am happily working along, except I get so frustrated with my own Hexagon screen. You've got such nice colors set for your various objects (selected, unselected, etc) in your screen, and I have tried to match your settings, with little luck. Your colors don't seem to be the default colors, and I really like the way they show up the different objects.
Could you please post a screen shot of your Preference Editor > 3D Display > Entities tab as well as your
Preference Editor > 3D Display > Selection tab? I would really appreciate it.
