In QGIS when I select a feature it automatically changes colour to Yellow. How can I change this ‘Selection’ colour?
By default, when you select a map feature in QGIS, the feature is shown using a Yellow colour.
However, choosing Settings > Options > on the Canvas & Legend Tab > and the Default Map Appearance section you can change the default selection colour to any colour of your choice – e.g. bright Pink.
Note – these settings can be overridden by the Project Properties, so ensure you change the setting there too. Project > Properties > General > Selection Colour.
Once Applied any features that are now selected will be coloured using the newly chosen colour.
