Default Visio 2016 change colours of selected objects/shapes

In Visio 2007 all selected objects will be shown in a green frame and are marked in pink.
This was a really good contrast to see that you have god all needed items.


Now we have updated to Visio 2016 and this colours are changed to a light grey frame and blue objects.
But these are often ussed colours of my old visio files (colours of our company). Could i change only this marking colours for example back to old Visio 2007 colours for selected objects and shapes. Mfg Theo

I am sure you can, although I am not completely understanding the issue. Can you upload a sampling of the issue so that I get a better understanding? You can do that using the "Go Advanced" button then selecting the "Paperclip" icon to upload the sample file.

Thanks JimP for responding
OK, my english is not the best :-)

Here again:
If i select in an visio file things by doing with the mouse a frame around some to copy or slide the part.
Then Visio made a light grey frame around that and change the colour of all this objekts to fat dark blue lines.
Especially in large visio layers with many parts this new low contrast cut and copy marker are doing the complexity unclear.
In the old Version Visio 2007 made a light green frame around this selected objects and changed the colours of picked objekts to fine pink lines.
By this exreme colour contrast you could better see if you have all items selected and better see where you placed them again.
And the question is: could i change this "tool colours" for example back to old extreme colours green and pink?
Best regards, Theo

Thank You...A picture is work a thousand words. I completely understand the issue now but, unfortunately I do now have the updated version of Visio to provide an accurate answer. I do know that in earlier versions (2003/2007) the colors you have an issue with would be done individually...and it was a painful process (I never did find a way to change those colors by default).

There is another site with more Visio users (with the 2016 version of Visio) that you may want to visit: http://visguy.com/vgforum/. There appears to be much more users there with more experience than I that may be able to help you.

HTHs...
