Highlighting problem

Post by Neeo »

In Maintype 7.0 the line highlighted reverses the black text to white which makes it very hard to see. In my case the highlight color is cyan and then the black text becomes white when the highlight lands on the line. Is there any way to change this behavior so the highlighting does not change the color of the text?

This is what I see when Row Striping is enabled in Options. I have no problem reading the white text on the medium blue (51,153,255) highlighted background.

The highlighting behaviour in MainType is exactly the same as the default highlighting behaviour in a web browser. Row striping has no effect on the highlight colour.

MainType should use colors as defined in your Windows Visual Theme (how to change those depends on your Windows version), but this can be disabled through the Options dialog.
