To set the colour of the revision, choose the revision number and then select the colour.

When the All Revisions check box is checked, EditMarks uses the revision 1 colour for all revisions.

Draw EditMarks in front, EditMarks will draw over the type, otherwise the marks will be drawn behind the type.

If you do not like our caret or underlines we can create custom drawing plugins for you.
