difficult to read screen text

Post by david1939 »

I've been using X6 for a long time (couldn't upgrade because my computer was running Vista). Now have a new computer and upgraded to Windows 10 and VS 2020. But I'm finding the text display very difficult to read - a selected item e.g. "Project" or "Clip" is dark blue on a black background (it almost disappears) and the unselected item is clearly visible. I'm showing here an extreme example displaying the properties of a file to be shared. Can I change this? My 81 year-old eyes are having difficulty... Image

Hi David
Yes the panels containing the properties text can be quite hard to see.
Unfortunately there is no options within the program to change the UI colours.
However as a little help if you click the text to place your Cursor, keyboard Shift + A will select all text highlighting it for you.
Other panels may need us to drag the mouse over the text to select.

A little bit poor of Corel not to have addressed this issue.
Regards Trevor

Thanks, Trevor! I think I'll send a note of dissatisfaction to Corel. Much good that might do... :(
