Menu items color

Hi, I just installed DWF Composer. The dropdown menus are a pain: black text over dark blue. The only way to find the menu entry I am looking for is to bring the cursor over each one: then they are readable. Is there a way to change the colors so it is usable ? Thanks Gilles Plante

Wow, that's surprising. This usually is a problem with low colors settings. Do you have any custom settings for Colors or Fonts at the OS level?

Gilles,

This sounds like a bug that we've run into before. If you could provide more details to John, hopefully we'll be able to figure this one out.

We have looked at the color depth and DPI settings. What other customizations have you done for display? Have you altered the Appearance (such as Color or Font's) for the menu's and toolbars for your system? Is there a specific "scheme" you are using or any 3rd Party applications to alter the display on your system? What graphics card and driver version are you running?

John, here we are: Windows 2000 SP2 Scheme: Windows Standard, default colors and fonts Adapter: S3 Trio32/64 Driver version: 5.0.2184.1 Going to 32bit color, but 800 x 600, does not help either. Thinking about this, would Autodesk have used regular menus, we would not have run into this problem. Flashy guizmos à la Microsoft does not add any functionnality, only troubles.

I should have asked for this earlier. Can you provide a screen shot of the problem?
