I previously submitted the information within this posting to the Logos 6 forum under the thread “Logos 7 Suggestions Due Soon”.  I thought it might be appropriate to share this posting within this forum as well since the topic I mention may possibly relate to accessibility issues (if I am understanding that term correctly).

Due to an astigmatism I have (for which I wear prescription computer glasses), the current excessively bright orange color shade of the Link Set feature’s indicator box is causing painful eye strain and distracting me from reading the Bible text.  This bright orange indicator box which appears attached to each linked resource's book cover icon causes such discomfort that I am unable to use this feature.

Please click on the following link to see a recommendation I have submitted to the Logos UserVoice site regarding this issue: 

https://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-6/suggestions/9117586-allow-users-to-customize-the-color-of-the-link-set  This recommendation includes the following options:

#1:  Allow users to individually customize the color, shade, and brightness level of the Link Set indicator box as well as the font color of the letter inside.

#2:  Change the Link Set indicator box's default appearance to a more neutral, less distracting color (such as grey).

#3:  Eliminate the box and simply attach the Link Set letter, using black font instead of the current white (or ideally allowing the user to choose the font color).

#4:  Replace the current Link Set indicator box with a less conspicuous indication that a resource has been made part of a Link Set. This could be accomplished through an additional grey icon along the resource's toolbar or through some type of visual indicator within the resource panel menu.

Although I believe option #4 would best eliminate this problem, I would be grateful if any of these options were implemented.

I have moved one of my UserVoice votes from a different suggestion to this one.

SineNomine:

I have moved one of my UserVoice votes from a different suggestion to this one.

Thanks a lot SineNomine!  I would be satisfied for Faithlife to adopt any of the options listed.  This evening I added this comment to that same suggestion:  https://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-6/suggestions/9117586-allow-users-to-customize-the-color-of-the-link-set

The comment pertains to Option #4 "Replace the current Link Set indicator box with a less conspicuous indication that a resource has been made part of a Link Set."  I hope you concur.  It reads as follows:

Regarding Option #4 above, I continue to recommend this option be accomplished through some type of visual indicator/selector within the Resource Panel Menu; however, I no longer recommend adding additional icons to the Resource Toolbar unless that would include a one click option to "hide" the Resource Toolbar if one prefers when operating in a normal panel view (not Reader View) or an option to choose one's own icon.

I've recently come to realize as more features are added to the program, it will invariably clutter the Resource Toolbar with icons, some of which could distract users from reading resource text or performing other functions. This is happening for me right now with the recently added Multiview Resources icon which appears to my eyes to dominate the tool bar and resource text beneath it.
