Drawing in the Background Color

By default, QCAD automatically adjusts the color of white / black entities to never match the background. On a white background, white entities are shown in black and on a black background, black entities are shown in white. This is to make sure that drawings are not "invisible".

This behavior can be adjusted under:
Edit > Application Preferences > Graphics Views > Appearance > Prevent white on white / black on black display
