813 - White default color scheme - wrong colors in viewer

#1 Post by Dreamer » 22.02.2020, 10:41

White default color scheme has dark grey background in viewer and quick viewer, even after FC restart.

[..] item has also black font, so it's not easy to read, txt and similar files has dark grey background and white text.

I'm not sure which colors are used here, in other color schemes it works good, I checked my white and light grey color schemes and it's OK there.

FC 813, Windows 10 1909.

I have used for testing 813 portable (unpack from original archive).
- start program
- switch color scheme to white default
- select text file and preview with F3
- colors are ok
- switch color scheme to any dark
- select text file and preview with F3 - dark color is used
- switch color scheme to white default
- select text file and preview with F3
- colors are ok

OK, it works with default settings, but it's broken with custom settings, looks like some colors from freecommander.ini file are used and the FcCs_White_Default.colors file don't have these colors, so they are not loaded and replaced from this file.

I sent you the ini file for testing.

EDIT: OK, this one is not a bug.

I tried to reproduce it with default setting and I found possibly related issue.

- use default settings
- focus any text file
- enable quick viewer
- right click the QV title bar - settings
- set Background color to black and Text color on Text tab to white
- apply
- restart FC
= colors are not changed

I know that colors from color scheme - main panel are used by default, but in this case I was not using any color scheme.


EDIT: So I couldn't reproduce it from default settings, it looks the old ini files saved some colors, which are not replaced when using White Default color scheme - new FC versions probably don't save these colors anymore, so the problem is probably only with old ini files.

Anyway, with White_&_Silver_by_Dreamer I don't have the same problem, so it could be solved adding some colors for viewer and quick viewer to FcCs_White_Default color scheme.
