Click to select the base pattern for board insight color override. Patterns available are: None (Layer Color), Solid (Override Color), Star, Checker Board, Circle and Stripe

Zoom Out Behaviour 

Use these options to determine how the nets are displayed when you zoom out. For example, you can elect to have the assigned net override color become more dominant the further you zoom out, until the layer color is not noticeable, and vice-versa. Play with the options to find the setting that best suits your needs and working preference.
