Sketch line color

Hi All,

I am a new user to SW2008, coming from SolidEdge V19 and am struggling my way through the transition. Not sure if my background in SE is helpful or a hindrance as I find I am constantly thinking I know exactly how to do this in SE but not in SW, and usually not sure if this is a technique I should be using.

What I am trying to understand is the line color in sketches in SW. I am working on a simple assembly and would like to edit some of the parts in the active assembly. When I edit the sketch of an assembly part in place the lines are all black, the current sketch as well as all the edges of the other parts in the assembly. In SE all the active sketch entity lines are a different color, making editing the sketch much easier. Having all the lines black I find it almost impossible to differentiate the current sketch entities from everything else. How does everyone else handle this? Perhaps this isn't the way I should be doing this, but in SE editing a sketch in a part in an assembly is a very common operation.
