Mac - OpenCPN 5: Grib plugin default table formatting

Can I manipulate the Grib table format in the UI? If so, plz point me to which field in the drop down I need to select to make text changes.

The issue is that the default formatting settings for Mac OpenCPN 5 Grib plugin is the GRIB table loads with white cell shade and white text data headers, making the text header unreadable

If you mean OpenCPN color scheme change, I'm running day mode. That being said, out of curiosity I did go in and change the color scheme mode to dark mode, and below is what I now see. I can read the weather table, but the default dark mode color scheme is unreadable for navigation purposes



If you mean turn off Mac dark mode, then there is no change. See below:

Yes, I know, OpenCPN is not user friendly.

Remove the check mark at "Use dark window decocoration", see attachment.

Re: Mac - OpenCPN 5: Grib plugin default table formatting

All good re: user friendliness; I think the software has a lot of potential and am really enjoying getting to learn it. Lots I still want to learn and give a go (e.g. satellite / forecast overlay).

Re: settings, the dark window decorations is unchecked. Below is a snapshot of my UI settings for awareness.

Re: Mac - OpenCPN 5: Grib plugin default table formatting

Just to be clear, the settings for dark mode were already unchecked and the issue still exists.

Wasn't sure if the lack of response is due to folks being stumped or thought maybe my last resolved the issue.
