LR3 needs to incorporate in the crop overlay grid lines the ability to change color and width of the lines.

It rather pathetic that lesser editors have an option to change the gridline overlay colors. Gray lines on light subjects, like buildings, simply disappear. Forums show the request has been gong on for 4 years. sheez louise

Still no progress on this. It seems it would be a simple fix. Since I can't see what it was like in Lightroom CC before I upgraded to Classic CC it may not have changed but it seems like the lines were white before but they are a gray color now. On most backgrounds I've been cropping on they virtually disappear. Being able to choose between black and white would be wonderful. If gray was added I guess that would be OK, but it's almost unusable.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Classic: Adjustable color, brightness, thickness of develop module over....

Could be me, but it seems the grid lines are dimmer or thinner or both with the latest release. It would be nice if ANY overlay lines were adjustable for thickness and color.

LR 7 introduced a bug where the brightness of the grid lines varies depending on whether the graphics processor is enabled or not. If this is happening to you, please add your me-too vote and details of your issue to the bug report:
