Button colour is hard to read (black text, dark backgrond)

Postby rbc » Tue Feb 16, 2021 12:45 pm

Hi,
I'm finding the buttons in OO (Writer & Calc) are dark blue with black type making for 1% visibility. Is there reason? Is there way to change?

MacOS ElCapitan
OO 4.1.9

This must be a popular question. See if Tutorial: Mac FAQ Q47/A47 helps.

A forum search for black dark blue will turn up a number of related posts,

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.

This isn't so as none of my other applications or system itself have this problem. For someone with visual difficulties, it's extremely difficult to hold up a magnify glass each time I need to see button text.

Because none of your other applications is as outdated and underdeveloped as OpenOffice.

Well, hasn't LO the same problem for the button color? Or have they fixed it?
But nonetheless, I agree with the message on the underdevelopment.

To be honest, I don't know. At least they do test new releases on all platforms.

It was fixed with AOO 4.1.9

How about all the code LibreOffice has taken from AOO and not returned anything?

Well, this is going off topic. Everything has been said about the problem of the button color.
Topic locked.
