    Black on black text

    Hi is there a way to change the text color. Some sites I get this on the drop down text field. https://s29.postimg.org/5poopc4o7/Untitled.png . This on MR. Grimms Hud machine red for RS1 1607. Internet Explorer 11.

    MacType has the option to be installed as a registry edit. In fact that is how I use it.

    Fix, yes, simple no and here is why........

    Changing the text color on the text box to a different color is easy but what will wind up happening is because that font color area is tied to another font color area within the system, so yes the font color can be changed but it will wind up throwing off some text color somewhere else in the theme also, possibly rendering another area unreadable or throwing off the theme color entirely because a font color that originally matched the theme no longer does. See what I am getting at?

    Every custom theme I have ever used has unreadable or hard to read text somewhere, you just try to minimize it when designing the theme, it doesn't bother me that much because I normally don't look at what I am typing until afterwards and if I cannot see or read it I just left click and highlight what I typed just to make sure there are no typos.

    This is the reason why Microsoft Windows is a basic black font on White background vanilla operating system, because so much of the fonts on the operating system are tied into many different places in the OS. It's not like one can just change the font color in one place and the entire OS font colors will change, one font color change area may only control 2 or three areas of the OS, change the color in one spot more than likely it will throw a font color or readability off somewhere else.

    Honestly, MacType is not all that hard to use and configure.
