Improve part auto color

SammyOneSammyOne Member Posts: 3
When creating a new part in Part Studio, a color is auto-assigned to the part. Frequently, the color chosen makes it very difficult to see sketch lines. One has to stop, go to part "Edit Appearance" and pick a contrasting color. This breaks up the thought process/flow when working on a part. It would be great to improve the auto-color function to pick colors that with a contrast ratio of at least 1:5.
Here's an example of a good color contrast with minimum ratio of 5: https://contrast-ratio.com/#rgb%28200%2C200%2C200%29-on-rgb%2892%2C70%2C90%29
Here's an example of a poor contrast ratio or 2.58: https://contrast-ratio.com/#rgb%28200%2C200%2C200%29-on-rgb%28192%2C70%2C190%29
