    Question:

    In QGIS when I use the Identify Results tool and select a feature it automatically changes colour to Red. How can I change this ‘Identify Results Selection’ colour?

    Answer:

    By default, when you use the Identify Results tool and select a map feature in QGIS, the feature is shown using a Red Colour.

    However, choosing Settings > Options > on the Map Tools Tab > and the Identify section you can change the Highlight colour to any colour of your choice – e.g. purple.

    Once Applied any features that are now selected using the Identify Results Tool are shown as purple in the map.

    Note – When choosing the new colour, if you move the Arrows underneath the colour wheel you can also apply a transparency to the feature highlight colour.

    Applying this transparency will mean you can better see the actual map feature below the identify highlight colour.
