Can we change the colors in the ITL?

Post by Stanislav » Thu Oct 02, 2014 8:40 pm

I check regularly when dealing with new traders and this isn't the first time it has come up. The negative reference "fill" color (dark red) is extremely difficult to read the text behind it. Used to you could "highlight" it and be able to read, now that feature isn't even available. The whatever color writing behind the maroon fill is almost and mostly impossible to read.

What needs to be done to fix this?
Lower rating? I ask that you ship first. Also, if I offer a stupidly good deal and you try to negotiate even lower...don't call it bad communication that you didn't get a reply. I deleted the message.

I think, in order to leave it red, this is the best we can get. I seem to recall that the text couldn't be changed in just that one section.
There may be something else we can do, though.
I'll PM Plarz & Lin and see what we can do.

That would be greatly appreciated. As it is now, it is just a red blob...which is good, but I like to read the story behind the negative mark. Some of them just don't jive.

I don't know what your problem is.

They seem perfectly readable to me.

Just checked today and it is now white letters on red background. OMG does it look crisp and awesome.
