I use OS 10.2.4 and LW 7.5, and was trying to change the background color in modeler to something other than grey thought the display options panel but when I change the color nothing happens. Has anyone else run into this problem?

The background will always be gray when you're in certain display modes (like wireframe, or weight shade). Try changing to smooth shade and then the color should change as well.

"Why?", you ask? I dunno. Its a feature. :)

Later,

If you feel crazy you can change lots of settings. Open up Lightwave Hub 3 Prefs, and add the following lines to the file:

BackgroundColor 168 160 144
StateButtonColor 168 168 152
DragButtonColor 156 168 156
ActionButtonColor 156 156 168
DialogButtonColor 152 168 168
InfoAreaColor 152 144 128
InfoAreaTextColor 132 47 67

Feel free to set the colors any way you like. I did a little experimenting, it looks like all of them will be based on a shade of gray, but you can get pretty funky if you want.
