 +======Tweaking Rhino'​s Interface======
 +>//Tips and tweaks for enhancing Rhino'​s interface via registry editing or external scripting//​.
 +
 +=====Changing the world axis icon colors=====
 +
 +**Note** This is the small 3-axis indicator in the lower left corner of your viewport, normally dark grey.
 +
 +====For Rhino 3.0====
 +**//First close all instances of Rhino, then run Regedit.//​**
 +
 +Edit the following registry key:
 +//​HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros\3.0\Scheme:​Default\Options\AppearanceSettings//​
 +
 +The last three keys are the icon colours. Enter an RGB value for each
 +(for example 0,255,0 for green or 255,255,0 for yellow).
 +
 +====For Rhino 4.0 and 5====
 +
 +These settings are now mostly accessible directly from the Rhino interface. ​ The icon colors are adjustable individually for each display mode. There is no global setting.
 +
 +In **Options > Appearance > Advanced Settings**, for each display mode (Wireframe, Shaded, etc.), expand the tree and go to the Grid section. ​ Under //World Axes Settings//, you will find three choices:
 +  *//Use application settings// will use the standard gray
 +  *You can set them to be the same as the normal CPlane X,Y,Z axis colors
 +  *Or specify another custom color scheme ​
 +
 +You will need to do this for **all** display modes you want to customize.
 +
 +If you want to change the default //​application settings// dark gray, follow the same procedure for editing the registry as above for Rhino 3.0 -- Just edit the key //​Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros\**4.0**\Scheme:​Default\Options\AppearanceSettings//​
 +
 +----
 +\\ 
 +
 +=====Reallocating the second and third mouse buttons=====
 +
 +<color darkslategray>​ This change will swap the middle mouse button with the right mouse button, for those who are used to having the middle button manipulate the view.</​color>​
 +
 +**Important** In Rhino 5, this is no longer necessary. This functionality is included in Options > Mouse.
 +
 +
 +//Close all instances of Rhino before making these changes.//
 +
 +Edit the following registry key:
 +//​HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros\3.0(or 4.0)\Scheme:​Default\Options\MouseSettings//​
 +
 +===In this registry key you will find the following eight entries:===
 +
 +middle_mouse_dblclk_remap ​      ​3\\ ​
 +middle_mouse_down_remap ​        ​3\\ ​
 +middle_mouse_move_remap ​        ​3\\ ​
 +middle_mouse_up_remap ​          ​3\\ ​
 +right_mouse_dblclk_remap ​       2\\ 
 +right_mouse_down_remap ​         2\\ 
 +right_mouse_move_remap ​         2\\ 
 +right_mouse_up_remap ​           2\\ 
 +
 +Simply edit each one of these entries, replacing the 3's for 2's and the 2's for 3'​s.\\ ​
 +The result should be:
 +
 +middle_mouse_dblclk_remap ​      ​2\\ ​
 +middle_mouse_down_remap ​        ​2\\ ​
 +middle_mouse_move_remap ​        ​2\\ ​
 +middle_mouse_up_remap ​          ​2\\ ​
 +right_mouse_dblclk_remap ​       3\\ 
 +right_mouse_down_remap ​         3\\ 
 +right_mouse_move_remap ​         3\\ 
 +right_mouse_up_remap ​           3\\ 
 +
 +**//And you’re done!//**
