Default DraftSight Backgound Color

I am trying to change the DraftSight graphics window background color to white. In AutoCAD itís Tools-Preferences-Display-AutoCAD window format-Graphics window background-Colors. How is it done in DraftSight? Dan.

Thanks for the reply Hemi. I can not change the Sheet Background color following your recommended steps. After I hit apply, the color does not change. After I hit OK, it still does not change. It stays black. I can get the Command Window Background to change. Any ideas? Dan.
