Is there a way in L4 to change the background color from the default white? I use either a gray or tan background to ease eyestrain when doing prolonged reading. L3 picked up the Windows setting so I was wondering if L4 could be customized. Thank you.

Funny, we discussed some of the features we liked about Pradis in the Forums right after it was announced Zondervan was retiring Pradis to make Libronix offerings (http://community.logos.com/forums/p/1705/13726.aspx#13726).  Three things we mentioned LOGOS would benefit from was 1) a pane system, 2) a tab system, and 3) tasteful color options.  Two outta three ain't bad, and I concur, grey and tan (and even light shades of green-grey, blue-grey, etc.) have proven helpful to me.  Maybe LOGOS 4.1 will incorporate background color changes, but I don't see anything on it right now.

Not to mention the fact as we age (55 at present) oue eyes do fail- and it would be very help to us who do spend hours studying using L4, to be able to save our sight a littleSurprise

Hi Whyndell,

I'm glad you're still here... I'd have missed you.

I would also like to put in my vote for this feature. I have "toned down" the plain white background for years, and it has proved much easier to read for these old eyes!!

I would like to have the active window border a bit more obvious. A one pixel increase in width just does not stand out for me. Why is there no color change of the title bar as in other Windows programs? I find myself clicking in a window just to make sure it is active.

I also want to make the colors of the scroll bar more obvious. They are so pale, I usually cannot see the grabber bar. Control of the color scheme would really help.

Would it be enough if we just adopt the background color you've set for windows in Windows itself, or do we need "local" control specific to Logos?

I'm fine with white, but if its going to be done i think this one needs to be local.

If you really want to appeal to the younger crowd you have to be able to choose 'skins' (if that's the current term).

As for me and my house, standard is just fine.

I'll extend the answer some - I would like to be able set different backgrounds for each pane and tab.  I might not choose to have different colors for each option, but I would like the opportunity to set colors that help me to study.  Colors might improve the ability to see the text - but it would also make LOGOS easier (at least for me) to use and track.

Blessings,

Floyd

Yeah, ditto on that.  Been wanting that for a few years.  :)

To respond to Bob P's question: local is needed.

To me it makes a big difference the way the interface looks and I would definitely suggest a locally customizable interface for not just background but also text color etc.  Also it would be helpful when I change the default font what it would look like before changing it.  In other words have each font that is listed appearing as it should when you change it.  Tahoma in the list will look like tahoma,  times new roman will look like times new roman etc.

I vote local.

It would be nice if the active window somehow showe brighter or something. If it is doing that now, it is not obvious.

Thanks for asking us!!!

I like Floyd's suggestion of customizing individual tabs. I think this would increase Logos' functionality to enable users to customize their own color schemes: one color for commentaries, another for Bible text, a third for dictionaries, etc. That type of coloring might take a while so I vote Windows background color as a short-term solution with local customization as a better long-term option.

I personally don't have any issue with it, but it seems like it would fit well under right under the text size selector. Local control would be most obvious and probably best.
