The green text on the black background of the incoming info panel has insufficient contrast for aging eyes! I am finding it tiring and so difficult to read on a 19" monitor.
As a print professional, I can recommend that a strong, bright orange or chrome yellow on a black background would be an improvement.
Also, any chance of the user being able to select or increase the font size?
NOT SO! Your instruction re font and colour surely relates only to the main data and msg panels? Have done that much earlier and now excellent.
My November enquiry asked how to change the Monitor's green text on black panel for increased readability. The incoming texts of other station's QSOs is almost unreadable.
It would be so useful to increase its font size and change to orange. If we removed the colour panel on right, could we have the text full width?
Have been liaising with Mike Richards G4WNC and our UK magazine 'Practical Wireless' on progressing the mode with more UK OPS.
Pleased to report that as I get accustomed to VarAC, I am now able to reach Beacons in VK, ZL and on Reunion Island on low power BUT I am concerned that so many ops use the mode as a form of FT8 and have not yet moved to keyboards chatting.
Congratulations on this splendid development and Happy New Year.
"Also, any chance of the user being able to select or increase the font size?"
How is that?
I really have no idea how to go about making such changes but would appreciate guidance if you succeed to improve the readability. I wonder if others have the same problem.
Of course, I do realize that 90 year old eyes are not best suited to this..HI!
Irad...do you have any thoughts?
Another op es myself, during a QSO, were commenting on the current font size. It becomes tiring after a bit struggling to read the 'data stream' panel. And that would also apply to reading the 'extra' panes, i.e. 'Gestures/Tags'.
The OP mentions having a change for better contrast for easier reading; I would like to experiment with that myself.
