QGIS - version 1.8.0. Is there anyway to modify the thickness and color of a selected polygon (Select Single Feature)?

  • the selected polygons appear in yellow color..you want to change that? – vinayan Mar 15 '13 at 13:34
  • The outline is a very faint yellow, I'm wanting to make the line thicker and in something like red, etc.. – KFP Mar 15 '13 at 13:41
  • why not save that selected polygon to an individual layer. But yes would be nice to know if each polygon in a layer could have different properties. – Ger Mar 15 '13 at 14:15
  • You can always add another attribute field to the attribute table just for coloring, and set the style to categorized by that field. – AndreJ Mar 16 '13 at 7:28
  1. Open Settings -> Options In the General Tab, there should be a selection color with a yellowish button. Click and change that to your required color.
  2. Restart Qgis to see it in effect

    You can also set this for an individual project by Opening Settings -> Project Settings, General Tab. No need to restart in this case. – AndreJ Mar 16 '13 at 7:24
  • This does not answer the entire question - how can the thickness of the selection symbol outline be changed? – Jakub Sisak GeoGraphics Apr 3 '18 at 21:19
