Minor cosmetic enhancement - User definable 'red and green' font colours

There are many places in BA where the font colour is hard coded as either red or green. This is understandable but I find that the green especially is really hard to see against almost all background colours, especially the more subdude ones that I prefer for long term viewing. I'm not red/green colour blind, but I do have problems with certain colour on colour combos.

Could it be possible in future versions for the Settings>Display(?) dialog to have these user definable? A darker green would be better, but I think I'd have mine set to almost black, easy to see and 'in the black' seems equally appropriate. I know they make the 'important' figures stand out, but once you're used to the screens, that becomes less necessary.

Thanks.

I think any user-definable colour options is a great idea. An example for me is the ladder where the pink and blue are indistinguishable so I have to change the font on the lay side to a bold one. I can imagine it's not a priority, but having a colour 'disability' affects even the choices of what software to purchase. Please Mr Webb, help us colour challenged people to enjoy your software more by providiing more colour options. Regards.

Yes its a great idea.

SHAUNWHITE- you can make the p&l in bold in settings.

I agree and I also agree on the enhanced charts very hard to focus. The lines are too thin and the background colour makes it harder.
Its a pain switching colours around.

My eyesight isn't bad either.

Along the same lines I think it would be nice to be able to change the background colour to black instead of white,as another trading product does and this helps the writing stand out a lot more. It looks cool but that's not the point I am making here. Having a customiseable background might mean all you need to do is change that rather than the letters and numbers?
