Hello

May I suggest that the next iteration of Logos have better way to control screen format.

I would like white lettering on black background so its easier on my eyes....and am stunned that I cannot find it easily.  Shocked actually...this is basic functionality and yet again proof that Logos has yet to consider ground up basic user functionality - a sort of revisit the basics that would be so revitalizing to us using this software.

Never mind all the extras in Logos Now I will almost never use or care about....put your mindset on basic user functionality and watch this software soar (my hope, expectation, and prayer) Smile

Blessings,

joshua

This is possible in Windows as part of the options of the magnifier tool

Looks good.  How did you do it please?  I still cannot find where to change this setting....should be more basic, easy, and obvious in my opinion.

Thanks.Huh?

Thanks...this little applet does help but does some truly odd color inversions in other windows and parts of my computer too.

Still I thank you for it does do and for what I hope Logos 7.x might natively do in the future...for just my Logos reading screens please developers.

Blessings,

Joshua

Faithlife comment on User Voice suggestions black background and Night Mode for PC/Mac

Bradley Grainger (Faithlife):

See https://wiki.logos.com/Night_Mode for ways to invert the colors on your PC/Mac, including Logos 6.

Logos wiki has => Night Mode that includes Negative Screen link that is easier to use than Window's Magnifier plus has smart color inversion so Black and White are inverted while other colors are not.  Added F.lux is available for Windows, OS X, iOS, Linux, and Android. Reviews: PC World and Sleep JunkiesF.lux has a Darkroom color effect with black background and red foreground.

FYI: F.lux changes color balance on a daily cycle.
