Font colour ?

Postby Fergie » Mon Sep 11, 2006 2:41 pm

How do I save the font colour as 'black'

I find that 'black' is much easier to read against the background colour.

Cheers.

I agree--I find the gray-on-gray looks out-of-focus to me. Or maybe I need new reading glasses.

Grey on grey looks better, IMO.

I suppose it can be ok if you have 20/20 vision and no problems with colours

I was always led to believe that text should be clear and crisp. To my eyes, black on gray is much beter than
gray on grey

Nice one Matt.

That's much better. Although there are bound to be some who disagree. :wink:

Thanks....it is much easier reading this way. Remember that most of the times there is an extra glass (of whisky) in between my eyes and the computerscreen.

Nicer colour

Matt:

I have to concur, I do like the black font better. Cleaner, crisper, easier to read and doesn't make me think I've had too many drams already.
