Hi Tristan, you can change the colour of any lines by marking the line(s) with right click and then go to properties and change the colour.
hope this helps .

To change color of center mark one procedure to use is
-on ribbon select "annotate"
-on ribbon (far right side) pick "edit layers", this will open the "style and standard" window.
-on right side (third column) ther is a bunch of black boxes, picck the box for center mark and choose the color you want, the click OK and Done.
The "Style Standard Editor" also lets you change the lineweght, linetype and color for other types of lines (like dimension, border, hidden, etc.). Its kind of like the "Properties" box on AutoCAD.
Hope this helps, if you have any problem you can e-mail me.

Hi Tristan, I am sorry I do not know what you mean fully by centre marks maybe if you can take a screen shot then I will have a better understanding and may be able to help.......

Here is a little screen shot of what I think you mean just now in, I have highlighted the tabs so from there you can change a lot of the settings....
