    it distinguishes the 2 from eachother.
    I don't think that's the case, because nodes only have colored headers. But this goes back to me saying it should be an option.

    Change the "front" color, and then the background color, like you can with the window headers. And maybe even have a tick that
    will force the background to match the front.

    With this new version it makes it easier to color code the collapsed nodes and see from a distance. As you can see, yellow, green and orange
    all look very similar, and same with blue and purple.

    **TL;DR:** Making it an option from one style to another makes everyone happy.

    Totally agree! Please give us more options to customize the look and color of all Nodes!
    Especially for Custom Events etc. Its not helpful only having this for collapsed nodes only etc.
    Collapsed notes aren't special anyway, they often just lead to obfuscating code far too much!

    But one workaround is to place a high-color-contrast-comment around key nodes (set A=0).
    Then 'Tick Bubble' color and zoom out. If you're consistent with color coding it really helps!!!
    However it still suffers one incredibly annoying limitation that Epic refuses to fix, namely this!

    (BTW:Add Editor / Project options, so nothing is broken for devs who like things as they are)!

    I don't know about anyone else, but I've found the gradient design of the nodes to go against the minimalist flat design the rest of the engine has.
    It also makes it harder to tell what the colors are, so color coding really isn't helpful.

    Because of this, I never use them, or if I do, I color them completely black.

    It would be nice to have more control over the colors, or at least be able to change the background color as well,
    like we can with the window editing in the new 4.16 version.
