MOB marker Infobox text color very dark

Hello Everybody,


This is my first post.
My name is Pascal, originally from Germany but living in New Zealand since a few years. A very good mate bought a Mumby 48 and i am a little bit "in charge" to get the electrics/devices up to date.


Anyway, we installed openCPN on a Rasp3 and so far it works pretty well.
but we realised on our last trip that in case you drop a MOB marker all the information in the upcoming info boxes are written in very dark colored letters with a black background. I know there is the possibility to change the whole color scheme but this isn't a game changer neither.
It was like the letters were "Kawasaki green' on a black background.


Is there any other way to change the text color or is it just because something else has been activated/deactivated?


Sorry for the may silly question and I hope I expressed myself well enough to understand what I am after

Please let me know if any further information is required.

Cheers,
Pascal

Pascal...


Welcome aboard.
Could you post a screenshot, so that we can see what you observe?


Thanks
Dave

Hi Dave,


please see the attached pictures. Hope this helps.
The second one is taken from very close and the TV is quite big. So on the boat it will be displayed on a 19" television.....hardly can't see the text. even if very close


Cheers,
Pascal

Change the color for "console legend" and "console value" in options --> user interface, to suit your preferences.



Reboot opencpn to see the changes.
