Application-wide Color of Plane

I am new to SW but not to CAD. I am using SW2021.


Is there a way to globally change the colour used to display planes? I am aware that it is possible to change it on a per document basis via tools, options, document settings, plane display. There it is possible to change front and back face colour for planes as well as modify alpha settings.


However, this is not what I am looking for. Isn't there a setting where I can alter the colours for the entire application?


And yes, I could probably edit all templates and enact the changes in each one of them manually but that sounds so... cumbersome? All I want is to increase the alpha % slightly, changing the colour would be nice, but I can live without that. I just think that 10% transparency is a bit low, especially since working in a sketch does not offer the option of hiding the model part located between screen and sketch plane (in essence displaying a automatic section whilst working in a sketch).


Thank you for your help.
