Sage 50 Accounts


Adding alternate row colours makes things easier to find. This is especially useful when you’re working with a large list of records. You can even add alternate row colours to the lists in each module. 

In this blog, we’ll explain how to do this.

How do I apply colour in Sage 50?

1. On the menu bar click Tools, click Options then click the Colours tab.

2. Under Alternate row colour, ensure the ‘Ignore custom colours‘ check box is blank.

3. For the relevant module click the colour picker.
