Usability bug: Color specification incomplete/inconsistent

Postby Yohtoire » Wed Aug 05, 2009 7:09 pm

The left pane uses #FFF as background color, and the user's foreground colour, which could also be #FFF or similar. Both background colour and foreground color either need to be GoldenDict's choice, the user's choice (better), or adaptively selected (most work to implement) in order to prevent illegible and poorly legible colour combinations.
The screenshot attached is with a standard colour scheme in KDE4:
Obsidian Coast.

P.S. Spell Check Bug for this message. My profile says British English, yet shows "colour" as a misspelling and "color" as correct.

Hmm, that does make sense, thanks. I'll add black as foreground. Btw, to customize colors, create a file ~/.goldendict/qt-style.css and put something like

Code: Select all
MainWindow #searchPane #translateLine, MainWindow #searchPane #wordList
{
  background: #fefdeb;
  /* whatever else css attributes qt supports */
}
