Back in October, during the BETA testing of GenDetective v3, we received this email from John:
“what if purple is my least favorite color. Can you give me one or two or more options?”
It’s a great idea, and as we told John, we would add it to GenDetective 3.1! Now, you can customize the colors used in GenDetective. What colors? Just about every color used in maps, charts, reports and the user interface.
Each of the color choices will launch a pop-up screen that allows you to chose your colors for each user interface element. Click on the color bar to change the color. Select from pre-defined colors, or create your own colors. Looking at the choices of elements you can configure, you will notice some elements can not be change. Color options include most elements of the program that use color, but gray and white are still with us.
To see changes to the general program colors, you will need to exit GenDetective and relaunch the program. Report, map and chart color changes will be updated as soon as you click on an item. If you don’t like your color selections, tweak the colors, or start over by clicking the “Reset Default Colors” button.
Below are two pictures showing the range of customization now available to GenDetective users.
Have fun changing your maps, charts and reports to match your color preferences. Hopefully, this works for John as well!
