[Solved] Button color for OpenOffice

Postby Pendozer » Sun Feb 14, 2021 11:21 am

I love this Office Suite, however, the button for Save, Discard, etc... are all DARK BLUE with black text. I cannot read what the button says. I have to guess. Is there a way to change the default button color?
many thanks..
Nick. :D

Hi and welcome to the forum!

I guess that it is defined by your theme (if there is such thing with Mac, which I don't doubt).
Can you try another one?

Else, try LibreOffice, it may have a better color choice.

But it's rather strange there is no more complains about that in the forum.

A workaround solution is offered in

This is probably the same as in Q15/A15 in the mac FAQ to which Villeroy points.

wow! Excellent fix! For several years I've avoided using Open office just because of this. I changed Display --> to Apple RGB and it works perfectly! Huge thank you!!!
