Question about menu highlight colours

Post by crtrubshaw »

Hi Rickard, I have a strange visual issue with menu items when I hover over them, the background colour is very light (the menu text is white) and this makes the menu items almost impossible to read, I have copied the set-up from my other PC where this does not happen so it's probably something with this PC, but I want to know if there's any way to address it using program options or can you suggest anything I can change on my PC which might be causing it?

Many thanks.

Hi again Rickard, might there be some registry settings or anything to check here? What code libraries or components are you using for the menus? I still have this problem and was hoping there's more investigation I can do but I really don't know where to look.

Many thanks.

Just to be sure: does it happen only with RJ TE?

You may be able to change the colors here:

There are plenty of menu options styles, inside the program, to choose from. One of them may work. E.g. Normal, Windows XP, Vista ...

Thanks Rickard, strangely I just had to (re)select my colour options in Windows 10 and it fixed it. Not sure what happened there.
