Plan Check is not highlighting what needs checking

Recommended Posts

I am using Tool>Plan Check.  I get an error message, like a wall with reversed layers, but the plan does not have anything highlighted. I am using X12 on a MacBook Pro running Mojave.  I noticed in a forum question that the area to be checked was highlighted with a pink circle.  Can I change "plan check" settings to make the area to be checked easier to spot (or to spot at all)?  Thanks!

P.S.  Yes, I can see the whole plan.

Plan Check is not always too helpful.

 

Here I've reversed the layers on a wall to show it working. If I was on a different floor, the message would show, but there would be no indication (the circle) of where the error was located.

Thanks!  Is there a way to make it even more obvious?  like the pink highlighting that I saw on a post in the forum?  

(Plan check hated my porch columns, by the way.  Grin.)

Where did you see that ?  There is a copy link tool in the upper right corner of every post or just use the link from your browser.

 

It just shows up like Eric's screen shot for me.

I suspect the Pink is actually the Person's Selection Color as it is an old TIp Here on the Forum, one I use myself in fact , which may have come from Dan Baumann originally?

I went back through my history but can't get back to the forum post that showed pink for the circle like Solver has shown above.  If anyone knows the tip to make it more obvious, that would be great.  
I'll check other floors too.
Thanks!
