locked Green Recieve Frequency Bracket


 

Is there a way to make the green receive indicator a different color or make it bolder?
I have trouble seeing it.
Tnx

I support the question. For the approximately 10% of males that have a green/red colour deficiency, this is a problem.

There is no configuration item to change that indicator color.

If you are able to compile WSJT-X from sources, then you can use this patch...

..to change the RX indicator to blue.




Perhaps the Developers might want to make this change in
next version if we asked them nicely.

Hi Dave,
I as well as others that have an issue with red/green color blindness (properly " color deficiency" ) have the same problem. Quire some time ago Joe K1JT said it would be done in an update. I sent emails to him several times and no response. I was quite surprised I know he is oine busy man. Hopefully that change can be made.

Add me to the list. 81, and it's getting difficult to see the green line.

personally I'd like better control over ALL the colors, I.E. the foreground and background of the program windows, program text, along with the message windows.

I'm afraid  I'm not computer savvy enough to do my own build. So while waiting for the dev team to consider this polite request, is there any way to obtain a build with the patch described by Kari OH2GQC?
